Answered on 5 December 2017

(a - f) While this office sends innumerable emails each day, I assume you are referring to the standard email informing members that Minister McGurk would be in their electorate.

For the member’s information Minister McGurk attended one engagement on the 18 of October 2017, in the South Metropolitan region, a Lotterywest Grant Presentation to Zonta House Women’s Refuge Association Inc. Excluding transit time, the engagement was for a total of one hour.

For the benefit of the Honourable Member, that email (as do all notification emails of that nature from this office) contained contact information if he required further detail.
