Legislative Council: Tuesday, May 02, 2023


Regional Air Services

The Hon. R.A. SIMMS (14:57): Supplementary: will the minister be advocating for the reactivation of regional rail, particularly to those communities that are being denied transport via air?

The Hon. C.M. SCRIVEN (Minister for Primary Industries and Regional Development, Minister for Forest Industries) (14:57): I thank the honourable member for his question and his frequent and ongoing advocacy in regard to rail services. I think members would be well aware of the challenges in terms of regional rail services. It's something that I can certainly refer to the relevant minister in the other place to see if there are any updates since this matter was last discussed in this place.
