The Hon. G.G. BROCK (Frome) (15:11): A supplementary: the minister indicated that he is talking to Morgan’s regarding the opportunity of getting timber from KI. Can the minister update the house on how that timber would be able to get off KI and over to the mainland?

The Hon. L.W.K. Bignell interjecting:

The SPEAKER: The member for Mawson is warned for a second time.

The Hon. D.K.B. BASHAM (Finniss—Minister for Primary Industries and Regional Development) (15:11): I thank the member for Frome for that question. The discussion we had with Morgan’s last week was that they were investigating, with KIPT, to see whether it was possible to barge timber off the island as one feasible option. That included barging it all the way to Port Pirie itself and then transporting it from the Port Pirie wharf to their facility at Jamestown.
