Commercial Fisheries Review

The Hon. N.J. CENTOFANTI (Leader of the Opposition) (14:47): My question is to the Minister for Primary Industries and Regional Development regarding fisheries and cost recovery. When will the minister release the report from the fisheries and aquaculture independent cost-recovery review to industry stakeholders?

The Hon. C.M. SCRIVEN (Minister for Primary Industries and Regional Development, Minister for Forest Industries) (14:47): I thank the honourable member for her question. The cost-recovery review, members may recall, was implemented as a result of a then opposition but now government election commitment. I received a copy of the draft report. There was some additional information required, so I requested that back through the panel. Once we have that and it has been considered by the department and provided to me in a briefing, I will look forward to being able to make further announcements.
