Parliament: 40 Session: 1
Answered on 17 May 2018


400. Hon PETER COLLIER to the Leader of the House representing the Premier:

I refer to the minister's response to question without notice 379 asked on Wednesday, 16 May 2018.

(1) Why was Nobel Laureate Professor Barry Marshall not included in the original delegation list as provided in question without notice 221?

(2) What criteria were used to select the tourism operators who joined the delegation?

(3) Who selected the tourism operators who attended the delegation?

Hon SUE ELLERY replied:

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

(1) Professor Barry Marshall travelled separately as he was in Asia en route to China. The Department of Jobs, Tourism, Science and Innovation met the marginal cost of his participation in Shanghai, which included delivering a keynote speech at the research collaboration luncheon on Monday, 13 November 2018.

(2)–(3) It is requested that the honourable member direct these parts of the question to the Minister for Tourism.
