The Hon. J.A. DARLEY (15:14): My question is to the Leader of the Government, representing the Minister for Primary Industries and Regional Development. Can the minister advise what was the final cost of the clean-up of the abandoned abalone aquaculture operation on Anxious Bay, and can the minister also advise whether PIRSA was able to recover any money from the former lease and licence holder for the costs associated with the clean-up?
The Hon. R.I. LUCAS (Treasurer) (15:14): I will take the question on notice and bring back a reply.
