Parliament: 40 Session: 1
Answered on

ROE HIGHWAY STAGE 8 — FUNDING REALLOCATION
      51. Hon PETER COLLIER to the minister representing the Minister for Transport:
I refer to the minister's decision to reallocate funding from the cancelled Roe Highway Stage 8 project to the Wanneroo Road, Murdoch Drive connection and Armadale Road projects and his decision not to go to tender.
      (1) Did the minister seek advice from the Department of Finance or the Department of Treasury before making that decision; and, if not, why not; and, if yes, will the minister now table that advice?
      (2) Did Main Roads Western Australia seek an exemption to the State Supply Commission's procurement policy; and, if so, who provided the exemption and on what basis was the exemption provided and will the minister table the advice received about the exemption?
Hon STEPHEN DAWSON replied:
I thank the honourable member for some notice of the question.
      (1)–(2) Main Roads Western Australia has a total exemption from section 19 of the State Supply Commission Act 1991 in accordance with section 20 of this act.
