MINING TENEMENTS —
622. Hon ROBIN SCOTT to the minister representing the
Minister for Mines and Petroleum:
I refer to the annual rents that the
government imposes on mining tenements each financial year.
(1) Has the
government increased the annual rents on mining tenements for the 2020–21
financial year; and, if so, by how much has the rent increased?
(2) If not, how
will the annual rent for mining tenements change in the financial year 2020–21
compared with the previous financial year?
ALANNAH MacTIERNAN replied:
I thank the member for the question.
The following answer has been provided to me by the Minister for Mines and
Council has not approved increased rents on mining tenements for 2020–21.
However, the usual practice is to increase annual rents in line with the CPI
increase of the previous year.
