Question Without Notice No. 651 asked in the Legislative Council on 13 June 2019 by Hon Tim Clifford

Parliament: 40 Session: 1

Answered on

JOBS — RENEWABLE ENERGY

651. Hon TIM CLIFFORD to the Leader of the House representing the Premier:

I refer to the government's promise to create 150 000 new jobs by 2023–24.

(1) Has the state government conducted any analysis on the potential job generation that the renewable industry could provide to the state?

(2) If yes, please table it; and, if not, why not?

Hon SUE ELLERY replied:

I thank the honourable member for some notice of the question.

(1)–(2) Although the state government recognises the potential of the renewable industry to increase job growth, no specific analysis has been undertaken on potential job generation in this industry. The state government anticipates that the creation of 150 000 new jobs will come from a range of different industries and employment sectors, which may include the renewable industry sector.
