Answered on 7 December 2017

(a-f) I assume you are referring to the standard email informing members that I would be in their electorate on Ministerial engagements.

For the Honourable Member’s information, I had two engagements on the 25th of October in the South Metropolitan region; attending the launch of the Baldivis Children’s Forest and attending the Lotterywest Grant Announcement for Sensorium Theatre Inc. Excluding transit time, I was in the region for approximately 2 hours.

Speech notes were prepared to announce the delivery of one of the McGowan Labor Government’s election commitments. I was thrilled to provide support to the Baldivis Children’s Forest and the local community of $200,000 towards building an education centre.

In Applecross I presented a Lotterywest grant to Sensorium Theatre. Sensorium performers, local parents and their children, and library staff were in attendance.
