STATE RECORDS OFFICE — 2019–20 STATE BUDGET

HON ALISON XAMON (North Metropolitan) [5.31 pm]: I rise tonight because I want to draw the attention of members to the effective disappearance of the State Records Office from the 2019–20 budget. I have already noted on multiple occasions that the establishment of the State Records Commission and the supporting State Records Office was a direct result of recommendations arising from the royal commission into WA Inc. I have spoken before about the importance of record keeping, not only as a transparency and accountability measure, but also as a human rights measure.

STATE RECORDS OFFICE — 2019–20 STATE BUDGET

637. Hon ALISON XAMON to the Leader of the House representing the Minister for Culture and the Arts:

I refer to the answer to question without notice 604 of Tuesday, 11 June, about the government services provided by the State Records Office of Western Australia.

(1)  Given that the government service “State Information Management and Archival Services” is no longer present in the 2019–20 state budget but continues to be delivered, how will the performance of this service be measured and reported?
