Business Transformation Voucher Program

The Hon. A.L. McLACHLAN ( 15:34 ): My question is to the Minister for Manufacturing and Innovation. Can the minister advise the chamber how many applications the government has received for grants under the Business Transformation Voucher Program to date?

The Hon. K.J. MAHER (Minister for Employment, Minister for Aboriginal Affairs and Reconciliation, Minister for Manufacturing and Innovation, Minister for Automotive Transformation, Minister for Science and Information Economy) ( 15:35 ): I thank the honourable member for his important question and for his exceptional enthusiasm in relation to our grants programs, and for the very stylish and ‘leadership-ish’ sort of way that he asks such questions.

Members interjecting:

The Hon. K.J. MAHER: Yes, ‘leadership-ish’; it is a good word. I can inform the honourable member that to date there have been 64 successful applications to the Business Transformation Voucher Program. Again, I thank the member for his question, and I look forward to more questions looking at various aspects of our manufacturing grants programs.
