Parliamentary Questions

Question Without Notice No. 495 asked in the Legislative Council on 19 May 2022 by Hon Dr Steve Thomas

Parliament: 41 Session: 1

Answered on 19 May 2022

CORONAVIRUS — BUSINESS ASSISTANCE PACKAGE

495. Hon Dr STEVE THOMAS to the Leader of the House representing the Premier:

This is question 416, which I lodged a couple of weeks ago. I refer to the $72 million level 2 COVID-19 business assistance package announced on 2 March 2022.

(1) As at 30 April 2022, how many applications had the government received for support under this package?

(2) How many of these applications have been fully assessed to date?

(3) Of the applications that have been assessed, how many have been deemed eligible for support and how many have been deemed ineligible?

(4) As at 30 April 2022, how much of the $72 million package has been paid out to Western Australian businesses?

Hon SUE ELLERY replied:

Can the honourable member give me the number again?

Hon Dr Steve Thomas: It is question 416. There are about three of them that are very similar, but they are on three different packages.

Hon SUE ELLERY: The answer does not appear to be in my file. If it does come in, I will give it to the honourable member.

The PRESIDENT: I think you were being asked for the date.

Hon Dr Steve Thomas: It was lodged on 9 or 10 May.
