166. Hon JACQUI BOYDELL to the minister representing the Minister for Racing and Gaming:

I refer to the planned implementation of a banned drinkers register throughout the Pilbara later this year.

(1) When is the tender due to close and what is the anticipated time line for assessing tenders?

(2) Does the department have a plan to provide each person in the Pilbara who does not have existing valid identification with the appropriate identification ahead of the implementation; and, if yes, can the minister please table that information?

(3) Please provide dates, times and locations for the planned workshops for stakeholders.

(4) Will the minister outline where the funding for the required technology will be sourced from?

(5) Will the minister please provide the actual versus allocated spend in regard to implementing the trial of the banned drinkers register to date?
