Parliament: 40 Session: 1
Answered on 17 May 2018

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?

Hon ALANNAH MacTIERNAN replied:

I thank the member for the question. The Minister for Fisheries provides the following information.

(1)–(2) The 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 clarification.
