North Metro Issues


2771. Hon Alison Xamon to the minister representing the Minister for Planning:

I refer to the approved $227 million for the Subiaco East redevelopment, and I ask:

(a)  could the Minister please itemise the items and amount for each item included in these funds;

(b)  which, if any, stages of the development of the Bob Hawke College have been included in this $227 million?

Hon Stephen Dawson replied:

More must be done to improve water quality if Swan River dolphins are to survive climate change

Greens Member for North Metro Hon Alison Xamon MLC has warned the impacts of climate change could be disastrous for the Swan River and its population of dolphins, unless more is done to reduce pollution and improve water quality.

Speaking in Parliament last night, Hon Xamon said the death of six dolphins since April this year reflected the broader vulnerability of the whole Swan-Canning river system.
