Written answers (Question to Communications)

In line with Section 29 of the Environmental Protection Agency Act 1992, as amended, it is a matter for the Environmental Protection Agency to determine the appropriate deployment of their approved human resources allocation. As I have no function in the matter, I have referred the question to the agency and asked for a response to be provided directly to the Deputy.
