I refer to the offer for staff to take up voluntary redundancies across the state's Parks and Wildlife Service within the Department of Biodiversity, Conservation and Attractions.
(1) What is the target of voluntary redundancies in 2017–18 and 2019–20 respectively?
(2) What is the target figure of voluntary redundancies from the department in total?
(3) What is the total anticipated cost to be borne by the department as a result of redundancies?
(4) To date, how many staff have elected to take a voluntary redundancy?
(5) Which division and district office within the department did each of the staff in part (4) come from?
      (6) What salary classification level was each of the positions and what was the respective redundancy payout figure?
I thank the honourable member for some notice of the question.
      (1)–(3) The government is still working through how each agency will make a contribution to the voluntary severance scheme.
      (4)–(6) Providing the information in the time required is not possible and I request that the honourable member place these parts of the question on notice.
