In Parliament

  • Tuesday 14 June 2016

    Rosalie Woodruff to move—

    That the House:—

    (1)           Notes that:—

    (a)           as part of an election commitment the Liberal Government allocated $3 million to suicide prevention strategies in the 2014/15 Budget, with $1 million to be spent each year from 2014/15 to 2016/17;

    (b)           in the first year of the program, 2014/15, only $339,000 of the allocated $1 million was spent, and the rest was rolled over;

    Ms WOODRUFF question to TREASURER, Mr GUTWEIN

    [10.21 a.m.]

    In the Leader of the Greens question to you, you refused to admit that you are trying to deceive Tasmanians, particularly the business community into believing you have delivered a surplus when in fact you have not.  Will you now say that both the Auditor-General and your own Treasury Department are wrong?

    ANSWER

  • Thursday 2 June 2016

    Rosalie Woodruff MP to move—

    That the House:—

    (1)           Notes the Tasmanian Greens’ Alternative Budget funds the purchase of five pill testing machines and provides for two FTEs to help keep festival goers safe.

    (2)           Understands pill testing is a proven form of harm minimisation that provides feedback to users on the content of illegal drugs, allowing them to make informed and safe choices.

    (3)           Further notes pill testing has many benefits with studies showing it:—

  • Wednesday 1 June 2016

    [6.48 p.m.]

    Ms WOODRUFF (Franklin) - Mr Deputy Speaker, I rise to correct the record.  The Minister for Health, Minister Ferguson, made what can only be construed as some misleading statements in the House yesterday about the question I asked him in question time.  He asserted that I made some false assertions; I want to correct the record because that is not the case.  I also want to point him to some sections of the budget papers he did not seem to be clear about. 

  • Wednesday 1 June 2016

    Ms WOODRUFF question to MINISTER for POLICE, FIRE and EMERGENCY MANAGEMENT, Mr HIDDING

    [10.35]

    The Greens' alternative budget funds staff and equipment to conduct pill testing at festivals and other events in Tasmania.  The evidence shows it will keep our young people safe from harmful drugs and it has the support of the Police Association.  Will you support this preventative health reform to keep our young people safe?

    ANSWER

  • Wednesday 1 June 2016

    Rosalie Woodruff MP to move—

    That the House:—

    (1)           Notes the Greens’ Alternative Budget makes a real investment in preventative health that will make a serious dent in the rate of chronic diseases, smoking and obesity in Tasmania.

    (2)           Understands the Greens would invest $100M over four years into preventive health, because we understand this is an investment that pays for itself over the short, medium and long-terms.

  • Wednesday 1 June 2016

    Rosalie Woodruff MP to move—

    That the House:—

    (1)           Notes the Greens’ Alternative Budget has the vision to secure a renewable energy supply for Tasmania that also delivers large scale returns to the State.

    (2)           Understands a Green Government would fund:—

    (a)           a smarter network to enable increased renewable generation while reducing operating costs and avoiding unnecessary capital expenditure on our network;

    Ms WOODRUFF question to MINISTER for HEALTH, Mr FERGUSON

    [10.28 a.m.]

    In the policy and parameter statements in budget paper 1 for this year, 2015-16, there is a policy item -

    Members interjecting.

    Madam SPEAKER - Order.  Members should be silent while the member is asking her question, especially the two members who are under a warning.

  • Tuesday 31 May 2016

    Rosalie Woodruff MP to move—

    That the House:—

    (1)           Notes the Minister for Health, Hon Minister Ferguson MP’s promise to fix the broken health system so that Tasmanians can have access to the best quality health care.

    (2)           Understands that despite the back-on-track rhetoric, the Minister for Health has attempted to hide the details of his ongoing evisceration of Tasmania’s public hospitals deep within the budget papers.

  • Tuesday 31 May 2016

    Rosalie Woodruff MP to move—

    That the House:—

    (1)           Notes that the Draft State Planning Provisions (SPPs) fail to prioritise the interests of the community, and protection of the environment, ahead of development interests.

    (2)           Acknowledges that the SPPs ensure a far wider range of development decisions will be “permitted” instead of “discretionary”, and that residents therefore lose their opportunity to comment on, or appeal against, these proposals.

  • Thursday 26 May 2016

    Rosalie Woodruff MP to move—

    That the House:—

    (1)           Notes the toxic algal bloom that formed along the coast of Chile, the world’s second biggest salmon exporter, has killed 23 million fish and had an economic impact of at least $800 million.

    (2)           Understands that:—

    (a)           the Chilean algal bloom was fuelled by a similar marine heat wave that occurred off the east coast of Tasmania during the 2015/16 summer, and that these events will occur more frequently as a consequence of global warming;

    [10.35 a.m.]

  • Wednesday 25 May 2016

    Rosalie Woodruff MP to move—

    That the House:—

    (1)           Notes that two years after the ban to prevent wildlife killing from 1080 poison was instituted and then reversed by this Liberal Government, approvals for its use by farmers have spiked.

    (2)           Understands that research has showed tens of thousands of browsing animals and non-targeted species, such as quolls and bettongs, could have been killed by the 1.33kg of 1080 that has been approved for use since July 2015.

  • Wednesday 25 May 2016

    Rosalie Woodruff MP to move—

    That the House:—

    (1)           Notes the only targeted sex worker education program in Tasmania will close on the 30 June 2016, as a result of the decision of the Minister for Health, Hon Michael Ferguson MP to cut government funding for the Tasmanian Sex Worker Project that is run by Scarlet Alliance.

  • Tuesday 24 May 2016

    [6.22 p.m.]

    Ms WOODRUFF (Franklin) - Madam Speaker, I rise to draw the attention of the House to the ongoing work of the National Council of Women of Tasmania.  The National Council of Women of Tasmania celebrated its 117th annual report for its 118th year this year.  It was a very moving meeting in considering the number of women over the last century or more who have been involved with goodwill in working for the women and children of Tasmania and are continuing to do so. 

  • Tuesday 24 May 2016

    Rosalie Woodruff to move—

    That the House:—

    (1)           Recognises that under the Liberal Government, the current price paid to solar households for the electricity they generate is unfair.

    (2)           Notes that solar households currently receive 5.5c/kWh for exported solar, which is then sold on to their neighbours for up to 25c.
