Question On Notice No. 1408 asked in the Legislative Council on 13 June 2018 by Hon Martin Aldridge

Question Directed to the: Minister for Regional Development
Minister responding: Hon A. MacTiernan
Parliament: 40 Session: 1

I refer to answer to question on notice No. 1047, and I ask:
(a) the 'ministerial vehicle' used to access the Perth Stadium on 1 March 2018, is that a vehicle owned by the Minister and chauffeured by a Department of Premier and Cabinet (DPC) driver, or a DPC vehicle chauffeured by a DPC driver, or some other arrangement;
(b) is the Minister provided with a DPC motor vehicle or does the Minister claim the motor vehicle allowance provided by the Salaries and Allowances Tribunal; and
(c) how does the Minister access Perth Stadium by motor vehicle given the current ban on private vehicles and ride sharing services?

Answered on 22 August 2018

(a)  DPC vehicle chauffeured by a DPC driver

(b)  DPC motor vehicle

(c)  The current ban on private vehicles and ride sharing services is only in place during sporting events/concerts at Optus stadium - I attended a dinner event at the Goodwood Restaurant when there was no event being held at the stadium, and therefore the vehicle ban was not operative.
