TIANANMEN SQUARE RALLY —
555. Hon CHARLES SMITH to the Leader of the House
representing the Premier:
I refer to the recent authorised
public rally outside Parliament House on Thursday, 4 June 2020 to remember the
Tiananmen Square massacre in 1989.
(1) Did acting
Consul-General He and Assistant Consul Wang have an appointment at Parliament
House on this day?
(2) If no to (1), why were they at
(3) Does the government concede that it would be highly
inappropriate for foreign dignitaries to covertly film Western Australian
state members of Parliament going about their business at this event?
(4) If yes to (3), is the government
concerned why and who they were filming at this public rally?
Hon SUE ELLERY
Extraordinary. I thank the
honourable member for some notice of the question.
(1)–(4) Appointments at
Parliament House are managed by Parliament House security.
