Question Without Notice No. 1046 asked in the Legislative Council on 19 September 2019 by Hon Colin Holt

Parliament: 40 Session: 1

Answered on

NORTH DANDALUP RESEARCH CENTRE

1046. Hon COLIN HOLT to the Minister for Regional Development:

I refer to question without notice 931 asked by me on 3 September. The minister's response confirmed that the Peel Development Commission provided approximately $120 000 to support initial site analysis, design and cost–benefit analysis.

(1) How much of this funding was used to employ external consultants?

(2) Was a business case or project brief presented by the proponents of the project before this money was expended; and, if so, will the minister please table those documents?

(3) Will the minister please table any design works or analysis?

(4) Will the minister please table the cost–benefit analysis for the project?

Hon ALANNAH MacTIERNAN replied:

I thank the member for the question.

(1) The total amount was spent on external consultants.

(2) The business case was considered and approved by the Barnett government. Should the member request it, we can seek approval from the Leader of the Opposition for these documents to be released.

(3)–(4) I can confirm that I have been provided with the design works and cost–benefit analysis documents. I am prepared to give the member an undertaking that I will review these documents and table them once I have had an opportunity to consider them.
