The Hon. G.G. BROCK (Frome) (14:48): My question is to the Minister for Education. Minister, can you please advise the house if there have been any discussions or the development of any plans by your office, your department or any member of your staff in your office or the department that would involve a reduction in the current space available at the Port Pirie TAFE for teaching and, if so, how would these impact upon education services available for Port Pirie and surrounding locales?
The Hon. J.A.W. GARDNER (Morialta—Minister for Education) (14:49): I thank the member for the question. Not to my knowledge or recollection. Obviously, TAFE is somewhat set up in a slightly different way from other parts of the Public Service with its own board, and I will make inquiries. I forget the list of people that the member included in his question, so I will check with TAFE to see if they have anything further to add. If they do, I will bring that back to the house.

The Hon. G.G. BROCK (Frome) (14:38): My question is to the Minister for Transport and Infrastructure. Can the minister give the house an update on a question I asked in the last sitting of parliament, on 20 February, regarding his department talking to TAFE about utilising underutilised space facilities at the Port Pirie TAFE campus?
The Hon. S.K. KNOLL (Schubert—Minister for Transport, Infrastructure and Local Government, Minister for Planning) (14:39): I can say, in relation to the question that the member for Frome has asked previously, that we will have some information for him on that in the coming days.

In reply to the Hon. G.G. BROCK (Frome) (19 February 2020).
The Hon. S.K. KNOLL (Schubert—Minister for Transport, Infrastructure and Local Government, Minister for Planning): I have been advised:
Following an initial enquiry received in 2017, TAFE SA and the Department for Planning, Transport and Infrastructure (DPTI) are finalising an agreement for the DPTI Facilities Services Regional office to relocate into a small portion of a long-term underutilised building on the Port Pirie campus.
