Written answers (Question to Culture)

My Department is not party to the document to which the Deputy refers.

Commercial licences and permits to operate class P5 boats at the location in question are advertised by way of tender. The person to which the Deputy refers applied under this tender process but has not subsequently provided the requisite documentation to allow a licence to issue. The Department has been in ongoing contact seeking the documents required and the applicant has been afforded time and opportunity to lodge the correct documentation. When the correct documents, including the requisite fee are lodged, I will then make a decision on whether to award the licence.
