In Parliament




  •  

  • Dr WOODRUFF (Franklin) - Mr Deputy Speaker, the Marine-related Incidents (MARPOL Implementation) Bill is a large amendment bill that will bring us into alignment with the Commonwealth requirements under the MARPOL Convention, the International Convention for the Prevention of Pollution from Ships. This bill will replace the outdated Pollution of Waters by Oil and Noxious Substances Act 1987, and give effect to the MARPOL Convention.

  • Dr WOODRUFF (Franklin) - Madam Deputy Speaker, when we are talking about jobs in building and construction we have to look at the biggest construction project on the Government's horizon at the moment, which is the Bridgewater bridge. I believe $576 million is the current estimate for that project, of which $461 million would need to come from the Commonwealth alongside $115 million from Tasmania. By any account in Tasmania, they are very big numbers.

    Dr WOODRUFF question to TREASURER, Mr GUTWEIN

  • Dr WOODRUFF (Franklin) - Mr Deputy Speaker, the Greens will not be supporting the amendment to this motion. We support the motion that it seeks to amend and I will make some comments about that. I am aware that Ms Butler would also like to speak so I will make some time for her to do that and make a shorter contribution.

    The point which speaks most strongly to me in the Labor motion is paragraph 2 - 'That we lament the secrecy and lack of consultation with the community prior to the announcement'.

    Dr WOODRUFF question to PREMIER, Mr HODGMAN




  •  

  • Dr WOODRUFF (Franklin) - Madam Speaker, I have a lot to say to this motion. We support the bulk of this motion. We support where it is coming from, which is looking ahead, planning for the future, thinking about renewable energy futures for Tasmania and jobs that will be needed, in this case in the north, because of the changing requirements we have in industry in Tasmania, particularly to phase out fossil fuels rapidly and altogether.

  • Dr WOODRUFF (Franklin) - Madam Deputy Speaker, we have sat in this parliament - those of us who have been here for five-and-a-half years under this Liberal Government - and watched as the Treasurer has practiced his dark arts of sneakiness, deception and dishonesty, cruel cuts, and then overlaid with that, amazing spin.
