Extract from Hansard
5660. Hon Alison Xamon to the Leader of the House representing the Minister for State Development
I refer to the answer to my question on notice, answered 7 March 2012, regarding the assessment of salinity risks of mining in Perth’s water supply catchment as prepared by the Bauxite Hydrology Committee for the Mining and Management Program Liaison Group as reported in the 2010–11 Department of Water Annual Report, and I ask —
(1) Will the Minister please table this assessment?
(2) If no to (1), why not?
Hon NORMAN MOORE replied:
(1) Yes. A copy of a report titled “Salinity Risk Assessment for the O’Neil to McCoy Mining Area” is hereby tabled. [See paper 4796.]
(2) Not applicable.
