I refer to stakeholder consultation undertaken in the development of the State Government’s Greenhouse Gas Policy, and I ask will the Minister please table details of any communication regarding the Greenhouse Gas Policy with the following organisations, including correspondence, emails, letters, phone calls, briefing notes, diary appointments, meeting minutes, meeting dates and records of attendance:

(b) Woodside;
(c) Australian Petroleum Production and Exploration Association;

(e) Chamber of Minerals and Energy?

Answered on 31 October 2019

(a) – (e) The Premier responded with decisive leadership to the call for certainty from WA industry after the release of the, now withdrawn, EPA Guidelines on Greenhouse Gas Emissions. He tasked the Minister for Energy and myself with initial consultations to develop a state emissions policy. I met with a range of stakeholders to discuss the parameters of this policy. This included the Chamber of Minerals and Energy.
