The Weatherill Government came under fire in Question Time today after revelations by Police Commissioner Gary Burns that the overflow of prisoners into police cells was starting “to impact on police operations”.
Mr GARDNER (Morialta) (12:54): Viva Campania, indeed. It gives me great pleasure to support the motion. I thank the member for Hartley for bringing it forward. I agree with everything that he said, as the member for Florey has said and, I imagine, the member for Light is probably going to try to say if there is any time.
