Rosalie Woodruff MP

In Parliament

  • Dr WOODRUFF (Franklin) - Mr Deputy Speaker, this is a complex bill that selectively applies elements of the Magistrates Court and the Administrative Appeals Division Act 2001. I want to put on the record how outraged we are at the complete arrogance of this Government in giving the parliament two days to treat such a serious matter.

  • Dr WOODRUFF question to MINISTER FOR POLICE, FIRE and EMERGENCY MANAGEMENT, Mr FERGUSON

  • Dr WOODRUFF question to MINISTER for LOCAL GOVERNMENT, Mr GUTWEIN

  • Dr WOODRUFF (Franklin) - Mr Deputy Speaker, there has been so much in the news over the past couple of weeks over the federal Liberal Party bullying attitude towards women in politics. They show contempt for the need to have women equally represented in parliament. They seem, despite everything that has happened, determined to stick to a system that has failed. There are not enough women represented in the Liberal Party in Tasmania or at the federal level.

  • Dr WOODRUFF (Franklin) - Madam Speaker, I support this bill and make a strong plea to the minister to address the key deficiency in this bill, which is the absence of any conversation about climate change. This is a climate emergency. We are all living in a global climate emergency. We are going to be addressing the global climate emergency for the rest of our lives.

  • Dr WOODRUFF (Franklin) - Mr Deputy Speaker, I find it concerning to speak in a Chamber where people are slinging personal insults across the room. That is really disgraceful and it brings a level of disrespect into this  place that we should all try to rise above.

  • Dr WOODRUFF question to MINISTER for LOCAL GOVERNMENT, Mr GUTWEIN

  • Dr WOODRUFF (Franklin) - Madam Speaker, it is my great pleasure to share with the House a fantastic climate leaders conference I went to last week, which was intended to equip students across Tasmania with the skills to become climate leaders in their own schools and communities.

  • Dr WOODRUFF (Franklin) - Madam Speaker, the Australian Crime Commission legislation went through the Australian Parliament in 2016. It was the second bill to merge the activities of an entity into the Australian Crime Commission. The first entity to be merged was the Australian Institute of Criminology.

  • Dr WOODRUFF (Franklin) - Mr Deputy Speaker, this bill that comes back into our place was roundly rejected by the Greens last time. The bill is in exactly the same form as it was. Despite the fact that there was more opportunity to consult than with the initial 2017 amendment bill, it seems the minister has failed to listen to the concerns raised in a number of the submissions, albeit very hastily prepared submissions because the consultation process for the last amendment bill 2017 was very poor.

  • Dr WOODRUFF (Franklin) - Mr Deputy Speaker, I was confused when I saw this as the topic for the matter of public importance this morning. My initial response was concern but I decided to hold my assessment of what Labor was going to say in this matter until I had heard the words. I am in total support of what the minister has said.

  • Dr WOODRUFF (Franklin) - Mr Deputy Speaker, I rise to make some comments about references made in the adjournment debate yesterday by the member for Franklin, David O'Byrne, and by the Deputy Premier, Minister for Infrastructure, Jeremy Rockliff.

  • Dr WOODRUFF (Franklin - Motion) - Madam Speaker, I move -

    That the House calls on the Minister for Primary Industries and Water, Hon. Sarah Courtney MP, to act immediately to cancel any lease or licence associated with finfish farming in zone 13 of the Tasman Peninsula and Norfolk Bay Marine Farming Development Plan.

  • That -

    (1)  A select committee be appointed with power to send for persons and papers to inquire into and report upon current firearms laws, with the following terms of reference -

    a.    Current and future firearms licensing regimes, including training and testing, licence renewal, licence infringements and licence categories;

  • Dr WOODRUFF question to PREMIER, Mr HODGMAN

  • Dr WOODRUFF (Franklin) - Mr Deputy Speaker, I rise to raise concerns Bruny Island residents have about the ferry service change proposed for the island and their right to have a say in the conditions and the contractual arrangements being negotiated between the state Government and SeaLink.  The state Government awarded the new ferry contract to SeaLink Travel Group on 28 June.  The Premier promised Bruny Islanders that their ferry service would be
