Answered on 10 April 2018

(a-f) While this office sends innumerable emails each day, I assume you are referring to the standard email informing members that the Minister would be in their electorate.

For the member’s information the Minister’s only engagement for the 23rd of January in the South Metropolitan region was a facility tour at BHP Nickel West’s Kwinana refinery. Excluding transit time, the engagement was for 2.5 hours. The Minister was accompanied by Hon. Kyle McGinn, a ministerial adviser and BHP employees.

For the benefit of the honourable member, that email (as do all notification emails of that nature from this office) contained contact details if he required further detail.
