Minister for Police:
I refer to comments made by
Professor Dan Lubman, AM, executive clinical director at Turning Point and
director of the Monash Addiction Research Centre at Monash University, as highlighted
in tabled paper 507.
(1) Is the minister aware of
impairment testing versus presence testing?
(2) If not, why not?

I thank the honourable member for
some notice of the question. The following information has been provided to me
by the Minister for Police.
