Parliamentary Questions

Question Without Notice No. 512 asked in the Legislative Council on 27 June 2018 by Hon Michael Mischin

Parliament: 40 Session: 1
Answered on

      512. Hon MICHAEL MISCHIN to the Leader of the House representing the Premier:
I refer to the Premier's answer to question without notice 266 of 22 June 2017 regarding the so-called 200 fresh ideas for WA touted by the McGowan opposition during the election campaign, and specifically commitment 191, ''Introduce a category for Best LGBTI Employer of the Year''.
(1) Has the government fulfilled that commitment; and, if not, why not?
(2) If the government has fulfilled that commitment, when did it do so and how did it do so?
(3) If the government has fulfilled that commitment, where is one to find the detail?
      (4) Has anyone been awarded ''Best LGBTI Employer of the Year'' since the election; and, if so, who was it, and when; and for what did they earn that award?
Hon SUE ELLERY replied:
I thank the honourable member for some notice of the question.
      (1)–(4) The ''LGBTI Employer of the Year'' category was originally intended to be incorporated into the Premier's Awards, which have been deferred. The government remains committed to delivering this commitment, and as such the Public Sector Commission is exploring other mechanisms to recognise the best LGBTI employer of the year.
