Career and Workforce Development Centre

The Hon. A.L. McLACHLAN ( 15:10 :50 ): I seek leave to make a brief explanation before asking the Minister for Automotive Transformation a question.

Leave granted.

The Hon. A.L. McLACHLAN: In an answer recently tabled to my question without notice the minister stated that 23 information sessions have been held at the Career and Workforce Development Centre at Warradale as at 24 February 2017, and that demand is expected to increase. My questions to the minister are:

1.Has there been an increase in demand since February?

2.How many information sessions have been held since the month of February?

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) ( 15:11 :38 ): I thank the honourable member for his excellent question. Once again, it probes some very detailed questions about automotives and holding the government to account in what it’s doing. I have had a look and I don’t have information as to exactly what has happened in the last few weeks or the last couple of months at Warradale, but I am sure that there has been further activity and I ensure that I will get the answers for the honourable member as quickly as possible so that he can continue his relentless assault on the government as to what the government is doing and holding us to account, as he does so ably.
