Question Without Notice No. 177 asked in the Legislative Council on 14 March 2019 by Hon Simon O’Brien

Minister responding: Hon S.N. Dawson
Parliament: 40 Session: 1

Answered on 14 March 2019

ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION AUTHORITY — GREENHOUSE GAS EMISSIONS

177. Hon SIMON O'BRIEN to the Minister for Environment:

I refer to a media release released by the MPA head, Dr Tom Hatton, on this day's date announcing the backflip that the minister would be aware of. When did the minister become aware that this backflip or this change in policy was about to be announced?

Hon STEPHEN DAWSON replied:

I thank the honourable member for the question.

I think the member asked about the MPA in his question. I presume he is talking about the EPA, the Environmental Protection Authority.

Hon Simon O'Brien: I thought I said EPA. That is what I meant.

Hon STEPHEN DAWSON: That is not what I have written down.

In relation to the statement that was made today, I was told at about one o'clock.
