Question Without Notice No. 96 asked in the Legislative Council on 21 March 2018 by Hon Peter Collier

Parliament: 40 Session: 1
Answered on 21 March 2018

      96. Hon PETER COLLIER to the Leader of the House representing the Premier:
I refer to the decision of Cleveland–Cliffs to end its Koolyanobbing operations and the impact this decision will have on regional Western Australia.
(1) Has the Premier met with Cleveland–Cliffs; and, if so, when?
      (2) If yes to (1), did Cleveland–Cliffs seek any financial support or any other support from the government; and, if so, what was that support?
      (3) If yes to (1), did the Premier offer any financial assistance or any other support; and, if so, what was that support?
Hon SUE ELLERY replied:
I thank the honourable member for some notice of the question.
      (1)–(3) No, the Premier has not met with Cleveland–Cliffs. However, the Minister for Mines and Petroleum made a statement to the Legislative Assembly today outlining the government's response, which I now table.
