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 (MorialtaMinister 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.

In reply to the Hon. G.G. BROCK (Frome) (19 February 2020).  

The Hon. S.K. KNOLL (SchubertMinister 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.
