ABORIGINAL COMMUNITIES CLOSURE
Question without Notice 1284 Supplementary Information
HON PETER COLLIER (North Metropolitan Minister for Aboriginal Affairs) [5.06 pm]: I would like
to provide further information for question 1284, asked by Hon Stephen Dawson on Thursday, 20 November
2014.
I seek leave to table the response and have it incorporated into Hansard.
Leave granted. [See paper 2310.]
The following material was incorporated
No decision has been made to close any of Western Australias remote communities. The Government will undertake a detailed process to
determine how to proceed. This will include extensive consultation with Aboriginal people and other stakeholders. This work will be aimed
at ensuring Aboriginal people can live in sustainable and healthy communities that can offer improved education and employment
opportunities, especially for young people.
