Legislative Council: Wednesday, May 18, 2022


Forestry Industry

The Hon. N.J. CENTOFANTI (Leader of the Opposition) (15:14): Supplementary question: I think the member may have misunderstood me. I wasn't talking about the success or otherwise of the research projects themselves—obviously, research is extremely important in any industry—but the success or otherwise of the centre itself.

The Hon. C.M. SCRIVEN (Minister for Primary Industries and Regional Development, Minister for Forest Industries) (15:15): As I have already mentioned, all of the arrangements around the centre for excellence are currently in the early stages of development.
