Documents: Great Barrier Reef; Order for the Production of Documents (27 Jun 2018)

“Pursuant to standing order 166(2), I seek an explanation from the Leader of the Government in the Senate as to why the government has not responded to the order for the production of documents contained in resolution No. 857 regarding the Great Barrier Reef Foundation and relating to documents from AIMS and the CSIRO.”

Questions without Notice: Great Barrier Reef (21 Jun 2018)

“Given that this matter was canvassed at Senate estimates where you were present, are you able to confirm that the government did not take into confidence the management of the CSIRO in awarding this grant? Does this not reflect a government change in policy towards the privatisation and outsourcing of public interest research?”

Questions without Notice: Great Barrier Reef (21 Jun 2018)

“Minister, this matter was canvassed at Senate estimates. Part of the rationale that was explained was that there was a private organisation that was able to leverage business connections to raise more funds for reef research. Can you now tell the Senate how much private funding this private federation has raised to date? What percentage of the $443 million does that represent?”
