55. Hon LYNN MacLAREN to the parliamentary secretary representing the Minister for Lands:

I refer to question without notice 1072, which I asked on 24 November 2011.

(1) Will the minister now provide a detailed response to each element of the question I asked on 24 November 2011; and, if not, will the minister explain why he remains unwilling to answer such questions, given that they simply involve the provision of factual information and are not dependent on any resolution being reached between agencies, and provide a firm date by which such answers will be provided?

(2) What is the total amount of money the state government, including its departments and agencies, has expended on the Mangles Bay marina project to date?

(3) When was such money expended, to whom was it paid and for what purpose?

(4) What precisely is the involvement of LandCorp in the project?


I thank the honourable member for some notice of the question. The minister has provided the following response —

(1) The state, through the Department of Regional Development and Lands, has put its position to the commonwealth; that is, the commonwealth has no legal interest in the site of the proposed development. The commonwealth is yet to respond.

(2)–(3) Given the time required to produce the information in the form requested, I will provide this to the member in writing as soon as possible.

(4) LandCorp facilitated the selection of the private sector partner, Cedar Woods Properties. LandCorp will continue to have an ongoing partnering role in the project.
