INDEPENDENT SCIENTIFIC PANEL INQUIRY INTOHYDRAULIC FRACTURE STIMULATION IN WESTERN AUSTRALIA — REPORT

1274. Hon COLIN TINCKNELL to the minister representing the Minister for Mines and Petroleum:

I refer to the inquiry on fracking and note that the report's 44 recommendations require action from many agencies. I also note that the previous report on fracking in 2015 contained 12 recommendations, of which only five were completed. Is there an overarching entity responsible for coordinating the implementation of this inquiry's recommendations?

Hon ALANNAH MacTIERNAN replied:

I thank the member for the question. The following information has been provided to me by the Minister for Mines and Petroleum.

The Minister for Mines and Petroleum and the Minister for Environment have overall responsibility for the implementation of the recommendations.
