SHARKS — HAZARD
MITIGATION — DRUM LINES — NEW SOUTH WALES GOVERNMENT OFFER
413. Hon COLIN TINCKNELL to the minister representing the
Minister for Fisheries:
I refer to the offer yesterday by
the New South Wales government to supply several Shark-Management-Alert-in-Real-Time
drum lines to WA free of charge.
(1) Does the government plan on
taking up the NSW government's very generous offer?
(2) If not, why not?
ALANNAH MacTIERNAN replied:
I thank the member for the question.
The Minister for Fisheries provides the following information.
WA government has not received an offer in relation to drum lines from the New
South Wales government. We have, however, seen some media reports on the issue.
We have contacted the New South Wales minister's office seeking
