Parliament: 40 Session: 1

Answered on

GLOBAL CLIMATE STRIKE

1008. Hon TIM CLIFFORD to the Leader of the House representing the Premier:

I refer to the global climate strike happening this Friday, which is calling for an end to the age of fossil fuels and for climate justice.

(1) Is the Premier aware of the Perth rally for the global climate strike, which will take place at Forrest Place this Friday?

(2) Will the Premier attend the strike; and, if not, why not?

(3) Will the Premier support public servants who wish to attend the strike?

Hon SUE ELLERY replied:

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

(1) No.

(2) No. The Premier has prior engagements in his electorate of Rockingham.

(3) Any public servant who chooses to attend the strike should do so in their own time.
