783. Hon SIMON O'BRIEN to the Minister for Ports:
Was the draft report by the Westport
Taskforce completed on schedule—that is, by the end of July—and,
if so, when will it be made public; and, if not, what is the hold-up, and when
will it be finalised?
ALANNAH MacTIERNAN replied:
The Westport Taskforce is
undertaking very many reports. Therefore, with that lack of specificity, I cannot
provide a precise answer to the member's question. However, I will say
that a body of work has been done, including the work that the Leader of the
Opposition referred to earlier. As I said in my answer, we anticipate that
within the coming month, those documents will be released.
