Social Workers Registration Bill

The Hon. J.A. DARLEY (17:08): I rise very briefly to indicate my support for the Hon. Tammy Franks' position on this matter in referring the issue to a committee. I understand the push to register social workers has come from the industry to bring accountability and standards into the profession. This is commendable, but I also understand there are concerns about what will occur if South Australia is the only state to do this. What problems will this cause for those who work across state borders? I support referring this bill to a joint committee so that this matter can be investigated more thoroughly and look forward to reading the report once finalised.
