Parliamentary Questions

Question Without Notice No. 1062 asked in the Legislative Council on 1 December 2021 by Hon Dr Steve Thomas

Minister responding: Hon R.H. Cook
Parliament: 41 Session: 1

Answered on 1 December 2021


1062. Hon Dr STEVE THOMAS to the minister representing the Minister for State Development, Jobs and Trade:

I refer to the Australian Securities and Investments Commission's laying of criminal charges against Griffin Coal for offences over alleged failure to lodge its audited financial accounts and to the answer to question without notice 1003 asked on 17 November.

(1) Who conducted the inquiry referenced in part (5) of the answer?

(2) Please provide a copy of that review.

(3) What volume of coal has Griffin supplied in the first quarter of the 2021–22 financial year?


I thank the member. The minister has provided the following information.

(1)–(2) Energy Policy WA routinely assesses the energy security of the south west interconnected system, taking into account contingencies for the failure of private companies. In addition, the Australian Energy Market Operator, as the independent system operator of the SWIS, undertakes its own regular analysis.

(3) The Department of Jobs, Tourism, Science and Innovation advises that Griffin has advised that the volume supplied to its customers in the first quarter of the 2021–22 financial year was 621 027 tonnes.
