BPW Adelaide Suffragette Dinner (Supplementary Question)

The Hon. T.A. FRANKS (14:42 :06 ): A supplementary. Given that the minister noted the numbers of women in this place, is she disappointed that the government benches actually have one less woman than they did in 2010, when I entered this place, and will she undertake to ensure that the government's next appointment for a casual vacancy for the Legislative Council is a woman?

The Hon. G.E. GAGO (Minister for Employment, Higher Education and Skills, Minister for Science and Information Economy, Minister for the Status of Women, Minister for Business Services and Consumers) (14:42 :26 ): Obviously I will be very happy when we finally reach the day when we have at least equal numbers of women not only in parliament but also right throughout all leadership areas and executive positions in our society. I continue to focus my attentions on and will work hard to achieve that.
