Question On Notice No. 2 asked in the Legislative Council on 11 May 2017 by Hon Nick Goiran

Question Directed to the: Leader of the House representing the Premier
Minister responding: Hon M. McGowan
Parliament: 40 Session: 1

(1) How many outdoor advertisements were approved for display on government property for the calendar month of April 2017?

(2) Will the Premier table a copy of each advertisement?
(3) If no to (2), why not?
Answered on 15 June 2017

1) Out-of-Home (outdoor) advertising can include billboards, street, roads, highways, transit, and alternative advertising, for example:

    • Wall and stand-alone advertising boards/displays in shopping centres;
    • Transit advertising on back of taxis, buses, ferries and the like;
    • Digital advertising on freeways;
    • Advertising on bus shelters and train stations;
    • Roadside advertising on public, private;
    • Doctors surgery or other in-situ posters.
To source and provide the level of campaign advertising data requested for each government department and agency [including public non–financial corporations (PNFCs), formerly Government Trading Enterprises (GTEs)] for each booked and planned outdoor advertisement would be a major task, and the allocation of the significant resources required could not be justified.

If, however, the member has a specific question regarding a particular agency's advertising I would be prepared to consider the member's request.

(2) (1) above refers.

(3) (1) above refers.
