Mr JOHNSON (10:34 AM) —As the federal member for Ryan, representing the wonderful western suburbs of Brisbane, and being a very keen supporter of tourism, I inform the House that thousands of Ryan residents and constituents rely on the tourism industry for jobs directly and indirectly. As such, I would be very keen on the parliamentary secretary’s response to this question. It is around the tourism industry’s response to the budget’s allocation for tourism promotion. Can the parliamentary secretary also inform me and the House whether other stakeholders or interested parties may have commented on the appropriation bill’s specific allocation of dollars to the promotion of the tourism industry? I would be keen to hear, as I am sure the residents of Ryan who depend on the tourism industry’s integrity and the tourism industry’s continuing success would be keen to hear, what the tourism industry’s representatives and other stakeholders or interested parties might have commented given this is such a profound and significant industry for the continuing prosperity of our country and the economic security of individuals and their families.
