Question Without Notice No. 646 asked in the Legislative Council on 22 August 2018 by Hon Jacqui Boydell

Parliament: 40 Session: 1

Answered on 22 August 2018

COMMUNITY RESOURCE 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?

(2) Considering 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.

Hon 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.
