I refer to the answer to my question without notice No. 1184 regarding Programmed Facility Management (Programmed) winning the tender to become the WaterCorp’s Alliance partner for Perth and Peel, in answer to which no loss of jobs was anticipated at Swan Water, and to expectations of 20–30 management jobs are expected to be lost across the current two contracts as reported by PerthNow on 29 September 2011, and I ask if the Minister will please also confirm that none of the existing management staff of Swan Water will lose their jobs in the transition to Programmed?
Hon HELEN MORTON replied: The Minister for Water has provided the following response:
All employees of Swan Water and Western Water service companies will continue their employment into the new arrangements.
