Question Without Notice No. 553 asked in the Legislative Council on 10 June 2020 by Hon Colin Tincknell

Minister responding: Hon R.H. Cook
Parliament: 40 Session: 1

Answered on

CORONAVIRUS — RESTRICTIONS — BLACK LIVES MATTER PROTEST

553. Hon COLIN TINCKNELL to the parliamentary secretary representing the Minister for Health:

Given that the government has no plans to stop the organised protest on the weekend, if there is no significant outbreak or spread in the next two weeks as a result of this mass gathering, will the government seriously consider opening up the state border and allowing larger events to take place, such as football matches?

Hon ALANNA CLOHESY replied:

I thank the honourable member for some notice of the question.

The government has adopted a phased approach to the releasing of measures and will consider further relaxation of restrictions in line with health advice following the evaluation of phase 3, which commenced on 6 June 2020.
