What Price WA Libs’ space hub bid?

Midwest Times - - OPINION - Mark Gil­li­gan, Wag­grakine

The ac­count in the Times (19/12) about why WA dipped out on get­ting the Space Agency raises a ques­tion about Min­is­ter Melissa Price’s ef­forts on our be­half.

She places the blame with the WA La­bor Gov­ern­ment for not putting in enough ef­fort or cash.

How­ever, Min­is­ter Alannah McTier­nan points out the for­mer gov­ern­ment de­cided to opt out of ne­go­ti­a­tions to deal us into con­tention for this prize while South Aus­tralia and other gov­ern­ments were busy in this space (sorry for the pun).

What I want to know is what Ms Price was do­ing in those years to en­cour­age her State Lib­eral col­leagues to get into the game?
