    Dr WOODRUFF question to PREMIER as ACTING MINISTER for the ENVIRONMENT, Mr 
    HODGMAN 

  • Dr WOODRUFF question to PREMIER, Mr HODGMAN




  •  

  • Dr WOODRUFF - Madam Speaker, I rise on behalf of the Greens to strongly 
    support this very important amendment to the Workers Rehabilitation and 
    Compensation Act. This is a great step for Tasmania and a great step for 
    all people who have suffered trauma and are going through the process of 
    healing or learning to live with post-traumatic stress.

  • Dr WOODRUFF question to MINISTER FOR THE ENVIRONMENT, Ms ARCHER 

    Tasmanians have just endured a frightening and exhausting summer fighting 
    massive bushfires. We have lost 6 per cent of our globally significant 
    world heritage areas. We nearly lost several whole towns and communities. 
    An El Niño is predicted for next summer and it is likely to make the 
    summer of 2020 even hotter and drier than the last one we have endured. 

  • Dr WOODRUFF (Franklin) - Mr Deputy Speaker, I support this bill. I want 
    to reinforce some of the comments made by Ms O'Connor about our 
    disappointment at the glacial pace of reform the Government is taking in 
    this area. It should have been clear to anyone looking at the commentary 
    on the state election last year that Tasmania is in trouble. Our 
    democratic systems are under threat. It is core business for 
    parliamentarians to uphold our democratic institutions and to make sure we

  • Dr WOODRUFF (Franklin) - Mr Deputy Speaker, I pay tribute to the 8000 
    students who were estimated to have flooded the lawns of Parliament House 
    and marched around the streets of Hobart last Friday. This was a truly 
    momentous occasion, probably the largest march that has ever been seen in 
    Hobart and they joined together with approximately 1.5 million children 
    from around the world in 2233 different cities, over 128 countries. Every 
    country in the world was represented in some form.

  • Dr WOODRUFF question to PREMIER, Mr HODGMAN

    The United Nations has given us until 2030 to dramatically cut carbon 
    emissions and stabilise our climate or risk the world warming more than 
    1.5 degrees. Scientists are telling us in very clear language that the 
    impacts on human survival of not doing this are dire. Your Premier's 
    Address did not mention climate change once. 

  • Dr WOODRUFF (Franklin) - Mr Deputy Speaker, as more than 100 catastrophic 
    fires burn across Queensland and as the UN has handed down a report that 
    says we must treble our global emissions reduction within the next 10 
    years if we are to have any hope of keeping global average temperatures 
    below 1.5 degrees, we had some thousand students walk out of school today 
    and strike on the lawns of Parliament House to call on their government, 
    their politicians to listen to them on climate change.

  • Dr WOODRUFF (Franklin) - Mr Deputy Speaker, the Greens support the Supreme 
    Court Civil Procedure Amendment Bill 2018.

    I understand that all the amendments contained within it were prepared at 
    the request of the Chief Justice and that, amongst other things, it 
    removes references to a long since defunct Colonial Courts of Admiralty 
    Act 1890, that it will allow the Supreme Court when requiring payment of 
    an amount of money that it may carry interest in relation to that amount.

  • Dr WOODRUFF - Ms Butler went out. Well done, that is really good to hear.

  • Dr WOODRUFF (Franklin) - Mr Deputy Speaker, I was cut short because of a 
    reduction in our time but I want to make some general comments about the 
    need for policy in this place that is based on evidence. I am not 
    reflecting on the bill that was just voted on. I would not do that but I 
    want to make some general comments about the purpose of introducing 
    legislation into this place.
