Answered on

CLIMATE CHANGE POLICY

569. Hon TIM CLIFFORD to the Minister for Environment:

I refer to the answer to my question without notice 548 yesterday, and to page 570 of budget paper No 2, which states that the state climate policy will be completed by early 2020.

(1) Will the minister confirm whether the expected completion date stated in the budget is correct?

(2) Can the minister please explain why the expected completion date has been delayed, after earlier announcements that the policy would be completed by the end of 2019?

Hon STEPHEN DAWSON replied:

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

(1)–(2) I can confirm that the current time frame for delivery of the state climate policy is completion by early 2020.
