Free-Range Eggs

The Hon. T.A. FRANKS ( 15:05 :26 ): I seek leave to make a brief explanation before addressing a question on the topic of free-range eggs to the Minister for Business Services and Consumers.

Leave granted.

The Hon. T.A. FRANKS: The minister would be well aware that her government and minister Brock awarded a $500,000 regional grant for egg producers Days Eggs to, 'build a new free-range egg production facility on a 324-hectare property at Port Germein'. My question to the minister is: will all the eggs from this new facility be true free-range under the South Australian free-range egg industry code?

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) ( 15:06 :07 ): I am not sure. I thank the honourable member for her question. I am happy to take that on notice and bring back a response, but I do not have that level of detail with me today.
