      521. Hon TIM CLIFFORD to the Leader of the House representing the Minister for Local Government:
I thank the minister for his response to my question without notice 486 asked on 14 June, which stated that the Department of Local Government, Sport and Cultural Industries is reviewing the City of Swan to ensure that there has been no breach of the Local Government Act 1995.
      (1) Does the review take into consideration the process relating to the development and advertising of a business plan?
(2) When will the review be completed?
(3) Will the review and the results of it be made available to the public?
(4) If no to (3), why not?
(5) If yes to (3), how will the minister make the findings available to the public?
      (6) Is the minister aware of the online article published by Echo News, which makes claims that the City of Swan deliberately made an attempt to circumvent section 3.59 of the Local Government Act?
Hon SUE ELLERY replied:
I thank the honourable member for some notice of the question.
      (1)–(6) As per my previous response, the Department of Local Government, Sport and Cultural Industries is currently reviewing the City of Swan's processes to ensure that there has been no breach of the Local Government Act 1995. A significant amount of material is being assessed and the review will be completed as soon as possible. Once this is completed, the next course of action will be determined.
