Question Without Notice No. 17 asked in the Legislative Council on 11 February 2020 by Hon Robin Scott

Minister responding: Hon R.H. Cook
Parliament: 40 Session: 1

Answered on 11 February 2020


17. Hon ROBIN SCOTT to the parliamentary secretary representing the Minister for Health:

I refer to the answer to question without notice 763 asked on 7 August 2019 about an MRI machine for Kalgoorlie when the minister said he anticipated that tenders would be called by the end of November 2019.

(1) Have the tenders been called as anticipated?

(2) If no to (1), why not?

(3) If yes to (1), why has the public not been updated on the progress of the MRI tender process?

(4) Can the minister confirm that the people of the goldfields will not have to wait longer than the 30-month period previously stated by the minister for that MRI machine?


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

(1)–(4) I have been advised that because input is required from Health Support Services, the Department of Health, WA Country Health Service and Building Management and Works, further time is required to answer this question. The information will be provided to the member by 13 February 2020.
