COMMUNITY RESOURCE CENTRES — REVIEW
Hon JACQUI BOYDELL
to the Minister for Regional Development:
I refer to the meeting of the minister and representatives of the Department of Primary Industries and Regional Development with representatives from the CRC Network on Friday, 23 March 2018 at Gnowangerup.
(1) Which community resource centres were represented at the meeting?
(2) Was this meeting part of DPIRD's review process outlined in the minister's answer to question without notice 62 on 15 March 2018?
(3) If yes to (2), what other direct consultation or engagement does the minister plan to undertake with the CRC Network?
(4) Can the minister outline the content of discussions held at Gnowangerup?
(5) How many times has the minister met with the Linkwest board at its members' request to discuss matters specific to CRCs?
Hon ALANNAH MacTIERNAN
I thank the member for the question. It was fantastic to be out in the parliamentary break and see those communities again.
(1) The communities of Bremer Bay, Gnowangerup, Pingrup, Walpole, Yongergnow–Ongerup, Wellstead, Tambellup, Jerramungup and Frankland River were represented.
(2) The Department of Primary Industries and Regional Development is undertaking the formal review but I will also take opportunities to hear directly from CRCs.
(3) I will be taking opportunities to meet with CRCs during the review process as I travel in the regions.
(4) The discussion in Gnowangerup was an opportunity for me to hear directly from CRCs in small communities about the services they provide, how they operate and opportunities for cost savings.
(5) On 7 December 2017, I met with the Linkwest chair, vice chair and chief executive officer.
