Answered on 19 November 2019


1339. Hon ALISON XAMON to the Leader of the House representing the Attorney General:

I refer to the Western Australian Law Reform Commission 2018–19 annual report.

(1) Does the Attorney General support the proposal by the Law Reform Commission to receive a recurrent budget from which to remunerate members and conduct projects?

(2) If no to (1), why not?

(3) If yes to (1), when is it anticipated that the commission will be granted a recurrent budget?

Hon SUE ELLERY replied:

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

(1)–(3) The Department of Justice continues to provide administrative support to the Law Reform Commission of Western Australia and ensures that it has access to the necessary funding and resources to discharge its statutory duties on a timely basis. Future funding arrangements for the Law Reform Commission is subject to further discussions between the two agencies and Treasury.
