Commercial Fisheries Review

The Hon. C. BONAROS (14:59): Final supplementary.

An honourable member interjecting:

The Hon. C. BONAROS: Well, I can have several more, if you like, but I will settle on a final: will there be input into the final review model that is chosen before the review is actually commenced?

The Hon. C.M. Scriven: I don't think you mean 'commenced'; you said 'before the review is commenced'.

Members interjecting:

The PRESIDENT: Order! Can you just repeat the question, please?

The Hon. C. BONAROS: Will there be final input by industry sectors into the actual model, the appropriate ways that the minister has referred to that will form the basis of the review?

The Hon. C.M. SCRIVEN (Minister for Primary Industries and Regional Development, Minister for Forest Industries) (15:00): Thank you for the clarification. I think I now understand the question; I had misunderstood what the honourable member was referring to. I have had a number of discussions, as indeed has my office, in regard to how it will be best set up. As I say, we are nearing completion of that, but I think it is important to make sure that the input is taken into account. I will certainly give some thought to the matters that the member has raised.
