The Hon. G.G. BROCK (Frome) (15:20): Supplementary: thank you for that answer to the member for Florey, Premier. From that answer, I am led to understand that if I am using my QR code at a location, that particular location should not be able to communicate back with me on my mobile phone which I have used; is that what you’re saying?

The Hon. S.S. MARSHALL (Dunstan—Premier) (15:20): Yes.

The Hon. G.G. BROCK: Well, I will talk to—

The DEPUTY SPEAKER: Is this a further supplementary?

The Hon. G.G. BROCK: No. I will talk to the Premier about this later on, but I am getting phone calls from those where I’m QR coding.

That information only goes centrally. I am happy to set up a briefing for any members of parliament. It’s very important that it can’t be used for marketing purposes because this was one of the reasons why we designed the system as we did.

In other jurisdictions, with the individual QR code check-ins which were done on an individual basis, of course they have then got your data because you have manually entered it in. It’s not the situation here in South Australia.
