Answered on 9 April 2019

  1. Please find itinerary and flight details attached (See Tabled Paper No. ).
  2. Please find the briefing note attached (See Tabled Paper No. ).
  3. Commissioner Darren Klemm, Fire and Emergency Services. Mia Onorato-Sartari, Senior Policy Adviser, Office of the Hon Francis Logan MLA. Kim Lusk, A/District Officer, Fire and Emergency Services.
  4. (i – vii) No members were notified on this occasion. While the Minister will generally notify local members of visits, it did not occur in this instance due to late confirmation of travel arrangements necessitated because of the ongoing emergency situation. The Member is reminded that the notification to local members of a Minister’s attendance to events in their electorate is provided as a courtesy, not an obligation.
