(a) any figures, modelling and forecasts on freight movements to and from the Fremantle Port, including current and projected figures, provided by the Western Australian Government for the Perth Freight Link project;

(b) any evaluation of freight figures or modelling to underpin the Perth Freight Link by the Minister's department or Infrastructure Australia;
