Answered on

MURUJUGA LIVING KNOWLEDGE CENTRE
      520. Hon ROBIN CHAPPLE to the minister representing the Minister for Mines and Petroleum:
I refer to correspondence from the then Premier of WA, Colin Barnett, MLA, dated 15 November 2016—our reference, 24-633658/JH—in which he states, according to my notes —
      The proposed Hearson Cove site is located within 1.5 kilometres of the Yara Nitrates Technical Ammonium Nitrate plant and the Yara Pilbara Fertilisers ammonia plant. Preliminary discussion with relevant State agencies have indicated that the development of the MLKC at Hearson Cove could present an unacceptable risk to public health safety.
      (1) Will the minister inform the house which relevant state agencies indicated that the development of the Murujuga Living Knowledge Centre at Hearson Cove could present an unacceptable risk to public health safety?
(2) If not, why not?
Hon ALANNAH MacTIERNAN replied:
I thank the member for the question. The Minister for Mines and Petroleum has provided the following information.
(1) The former Department of Mines and Petroleum.
(2) Not applicable.
