Parliamentary Questions

Question Without Notice No. 784 asked in the Legislative Council on 12 September 2018 by Hon Simon O’Brien

Parliament: 40 Session: 1

Answered on 12 September 2018


784. Hon SIMON O'BRIEN to the Leader of the House representing the Premier:

Notice of this question was given, I think, on 29 or 30 August. Although I think it is similar to part of the question asked today by the Leader of the Opposition, I will ask it anyway on the remote chance I will get an answer.

What future use is the government planning for the buildings currently housing the Constitutional Centre and the Electoral Education Centre?

Hon SUE ELLERY replied:

I thank the honourable member for some notice of the question. I agree with the point that he made, that it was lodged on 30 August.

A review is currently being undertaken on the operations of the Constitutional Centre. The review of the Constitutional Centre is focused on whether the centre is meeting its aims and objectives; the current service delivery model, including digital engagement; and whether opportunities for synergies with other state and commonwealth government programs exist. It should be noted for listeners of the Rumour File on 6PR that the Premier has no intention of moving from Dumas House, and enjoys being in the same building as his ministers.

Hon Simon O'Brien: He's a masochist, isn't he?

Hon SUE ELLERY: He loves us.
