Question: APY Art Centre Collective Funding

The Hon. T.A. FRANKS: Supplementary: will the minister undertake to contact ORIC to see the progress of their current investigation, if it is still current?

The Hon. K.J. MAHER (Minister for Aboriginal Affairs, Attorney-General, Minister for Industrial Relations and Public Sector): I am happy to see whatever information can be found out, and that is possibly through Minister Michaels' office. I am happy to see, if it's possible to find out, where it's up to. 

The Hon. T.A. FRANKS: Supplementary: when will the money that was previously frozen with regard to APY ACC's activities in Port Augusta be unfrozen?

The Hon. K.J. MAHER (Minister for Aboriginal Affairs, Attorney-General, Minister for Industrial Relations and Public Sector): I am happy to answer those questions. I am not aware of money that was earmarked for any arts operations in Port Augusta being frozen. I am aware of money that would have been paid to APY Art Centre Collective themselves, which I think was, if my memory serves me correctly, just over $200,000. I can't remember if that is a six-month or a 12-month payment. I think it was a 12-month payment being frozen, but I am happy to inquire about that with the arts minister and bring back a reply.

The Hon. T.A. FRANKS: Supplementary: will the minister undertake to ascertain whether or not the Minister for Arts advised other jurisdictions at a national meeting to not fund APY Art Centre Collective?

The Hon. K.J. MAHER (Minister for Aboriginal Affairs, Attorney-General, Minister for Industrial Relations and Public Sector): I am not aware of that, but I am happy to pass on the question that the honourable member has asked.
