583. Hon ROBIN SCOTT to the Leader of the House representing
I refer to the Premier's
announcement on 9 June 2020 that eastern states fly in, fly out workers would
be eligible to access our state's $20 000 building bonus grant.
(1) Will it be a condition
that the building bonus grant be spent on building in a regional town; and, if
not, why not?
(2) Will it be a condition
that the eastern states person remains for a minimum period of time; if so, how
long; and, if not, why not?
(3) If a family
leaves before any minimum period, will there be any consequences; and, if so,
how will the government enforce those consequences?
I thank the honourable member for
some notice of the question.
(1)–(3) Fly in, fly out workers who choose to relocate to Western
Australia will need to meet the same requirements as any other
applicants for the building bonus grant.
