The Hon. G.G. BROCK (Frome) (15:19): My question is to the minister representing the Minister for Health and Wellbeing. Can the minister update the house on the progress of the compensation for Bakers Delight at Port Pirie for the loss of trade during the sudden three-day shutdown in November last year? With your leave and that of the house, sir, I will explain a bit further.
The Hon. G.G. BROCK: On 10 December last year, I wrote to the Treasurer requesting compensation for the loss of products during the sudden shutdown, and that was fully explained in the letter. This letter was passed on to the Minister for Health and Wellbeing on 21 December last year and I asked the minister representing the Minister for Health and Wellbeing for clarity as to where this letter was on 17 March, inquiring about the decision from the Minister for Health. However, to date, I have had no response to myself nor Bakers Delight at Port Pirie regarding the request.
The Hon. J.A.W. GARDNER (Morialta—Minister for Education) (15:20): I thank the member for the question. I will take that on notice and bring back an answer.
