HON ROBIN CHAPPLE (Mining and Pastoral) [5.13 pm]: […] The essence of the Minerals Research Institute of Western Australia Bill 2013 is to formalise the name change between what was MERIWA, which then became WAMRI, which is now MRIWA. I thought WAMRI had been legislated for, but apparently it never got quite that far and has now had its name changed again. It has been changed from WAMRI because it actually clashed with the Western Australian Institute for Medical Research so we actually would have ended up would two “WAMRIs”, which might have, especially when it came to parliamentary questions, caused some confusion.

Hon Peter Katsambanis: Alphabet soup!

Hon ROBIN CHAPPLE: Yes.
