Parliamentary Questions

Question Without Notice No. 1049 asked in the Legislative Council on 19 September 2019 by Hon Tjorn Sibma

Minister responding: Hon A. MacTiernan
Parliament: 40 Session: 1

Answered on

PILBARA PORTS AUTHORITY — ODYSSEY MARINE

1049. Hon TJORN SIBMA to the Minister for Ports:

I have a legitimate question without notice, and it is directed to that top shelf McGowan minister, the Minister for Ports.

I refer to the management of commercial documents relating to the Pilbara Ports Authority and Odyssey Marine, the subject of my questions of 4 to 18 September inclusive. Can the minister guarantee that those documents, or their contents or substance, were not disclosed to any current or former member of the Maritime Union of Australia?

Hon ALANNAH MacTIERNAN replied:

As I have made very clear, and as I say again, I consider, as a minister who has responsibility for the agency, that I do have a responsibility to look at complaints about the operations of agencies and to properly investigate them. As I said, the documents that were obtained from the Pilbara Ports Authority were handed directly to the State Solicitor's Office and to no-one else.
