Question Without Notice No. 182 asked in the Legislative Council on 28 March 2018 by Hon Simon O’Brien

Minister responding: Hon P. Papalia
Parliament: 40 Session: 1
Answered on 28 March 2018

      182. Hon SIMON O'BRIEN to the minister representing the Minister for Tourism:
I refer to the government's recently announced plans for a signature tourism event as part of the government's two-year action plan.
(1) What funds will be allocated to run this grassroots event? It is a buzzword-obsessed government!
      (2) Will it be funded from the $85 million marketing and events budget, or will the budget require new allocations?
      (3) If new allocations are not allocated, what programs will have funding cut or reduced to support this new event?
I thank the member for notice of this question. The following information has been provided to me by the Minister for Tourism.
(1)–(3) This project is in its early development and the final funding requirement is yet to be determined.
