      33. Hon ROBIN SCOTT to the minister representing the Minister for Tourism:
      (1) Does the minister agree that Western Australia deserves more tourists than we are presently receiving?

(3) Does the minister agree that we need to attract more international flights?
      (4) Does the minister agree that a state that is larger than most countries deserves multiple international airports additional to Perth, Port Hedland and Broome?
