Question Without Notice No. 1313 asked in the Legislative Council on 5 December 2018 by Hon Simon O’Brien

Minister responding: Hon D.A. Templeman
Parliament: 40 Session: 1

Answered on 5 December 2018


1313. Hon SIMON O'BRIEN to the Leader of the House representing the Minister for Local Government:

This question was to the Leader of the House representing the Attorney General, but I understand that it has been redirected to the Leader of the House representing the Minister for Local Government.

I refer to the draft report of the Department of Local Government, Sport and Cultural Industries–authorised inquiry into the City of Melville.

(1) Has the draft report been referred to the State Solicitor's Office for review; and, if so, on what date and by whom?

(2) What was requested of the State Solicitor's Office in connection with this draft report, including a date for a response?

(3) Has the State Solicitor's Office provided advice, including any interim or preliminary advice, on this matter; and, if so, on what date, to whom and by what means—for example, phone, email et cetera?

Hon SUE ELLERY replied:

I thank the honourable member for some notice of the question and his patience yesterday.

(1)–(3) In order to finalise the authorised inquiry report into the City of Melville, an iterative review process with the State Solicitor's Office commenced on 14 August 2018. On completion of the review and any consequential natural justice process requirements, the report will be released.
