CENTRES — PREMIER'S COMMENTS
646. Hon JACQUI BOYDELL to the Minister for Regional Development:
I refer to the Premier's
assertion today that, and I quote, all community resource centre employees are
National Party hacks.
(1) Given the minister is in control of community
resource centres, does she agree with the Premier's comments?
the minister's government has this view, what evidence does she have to
support that claim?
The PRESIDENT: Minister for
Regional Development, before you respond, the question is really seeking your
opinion, so I am going to leave it up to you whether you choose to answer a part
of that question.
Hon Jacqui Boydell: Half.
The PRESIDENT: Or none of it.
ALANNAH MacTIERNAN replied:
Thank you, member.
I have not seen the statement that
the member alleges was uttered by the Premier. I know that there are many fine
people working in community resource centres, and we look forward to working
with them very constructively over our term in government.
