- Term of Royal Commission extended to allow additional time for investigations
- Final report was initially expected to be delivered mid-November 2021
- Report now expected to be delivered to State Government in March 2022
The timeline for the delivery of the Perth Casino Royal Commission's final report has been extended to March 4, 2022 following a request from Commissioners for more time to carry out their investigations.
The Royal Commission has requested more time to ensure its activities properly serve the public interest and produce a final report and recommendations in line with the State Government and public's expectations.
With the timing of the Victorian Royal Commission report extended from August 1, 2021 to October 15, 2021, the extended timeline will enable the Perth Casino Royal Commission to ensure findings and recommendations from that State can be fully considered.
The State Government has received the Perth Casino Royal Commission interim report and will table it when the Western Australian Parliament next sits in August.
Comments attributed to Premier Mark McGowan:
"The State Government has agreed to extend the timeline for the delivery of the Perth Casino Royal Commission final report to March 4, 2022.
"This will provide Commissioners with additional time to carry out their investigations and consider the findings of the Victorian Royal Commission.
"The State Government believes that public interest will be best served if the Perth Casino Royal Commission has sufficient time to produce its final report."
