Rosalie Woodruff MP

In Parliament

  • Question Without Notice

    TUESDAY 15 MARCH 2016

    To the Minister for Energy

    Minister, Hydro storages are now at their lowest ever level of 14.8 per cent, down from 15.5 per cent only a week ago. A Hydro Tasmania spokesperson is reported to have said that if historical records hold true, rain is “hopefully on the way in coming months”.

  • Question without Notice

    THURSDAY 10 MARCH 2016

    To the Minister for Energy

    Thousands of everyday Tasmanians with rooftop solar are having to pay to use the power they generate from solar panels for heating their own hot water and homes because of a meter software glitch.

    These are ordinary people using their own money to make a positive contribution to power generation in our state's energy crisis.

  • Question without Notice

    WEDNESDAY 9 MARCH 2016

    To the Minister for Energy

    The state is in an energy crisis. You’ve committed to spending over a hundred million dollars in dirty diesel generation, to damaging Hydro assets by running dam levels so low, and putting vulnerable aquatic ecosystems at risk.

  • NOTICE OF MOTION

    WEDNESDAY 9 MARCH 2016

    Rosalie Woodruff on tomorrow to move -

    That this House:

    1.       Acknowledges the case of a 95 year old woman forced to lie on an Emergency Department floor without a bed for hours is tangible evidence of the terrible state of Tasmania’s public health system.

  • NOTICE OF MOTION

    WEDNESDAY 9 MARCH 2016

    Rosalie Woodruff on tomorrow to move -

    That this House:

    1.     Acknowledges the Government finds itself in the midst of an energy crisis, facing soaring costs, electricity rationing, and environmental damage because of an ideological resistance to push the building of new wind farms, and sought to put a lid on rooftop solar.

  • Rosalie Woodruff MP to the Minister for Health

    The Medical Imaging Unit at the Royal Hobart Hospital is the only place in Tasmania where people can access breast, liver and cardiac scans that are not Medicare rebatable. It undertakes research with the Menzies Centre, and is the only training provider for radiographers in the state. Despite all this, it runs at a profit .

    The government has invested a lot of money over recent years to update equipment, and draws significant levels of Medicare funding relative to costs.

  • Question without Notice

    WEDNESDAY 18 November 2015

     

    My question is to the Premier

    The cuts to the Ombudsman’s budget have reduced staffing levels by 20 per cent since 2011. There are now only 15 and a half full-time equivalent positions. Just point six of a position is allocated to respond to RTI requests.

    This has resulted in a decrease in the number of reviews assessed by the Ombudsman from 21 to only 8 last year, or 62%.

    Are you purposely running our state’s investigatory agencies into the ground to avoid scrutiny?

  • NOTICE OF MOTION

    TUESDAY 17 NOVEMBER 2015

    Rosalie Woodruff MP on tomorrow to move -

     

    That this House:

     

    (1)             Closely scrutinises any policies, including ‘user-pay’ models, that put at risk the fundamental and essential function of courts in dispensing justice in a modern and democratic society.

    (2)             Acknowledges that for a just and fair society to function, every member of our community must be treated equally before the law, free from the influence of money, status or power.

    That this house:

  • Ms WOODRUFF (Franklin) - Madam Speaker, I rise tonight to pay tribute to Doug Duthoit. I read now from a speech which was written by Rene Raichert, who is the Kingborough Council's NRM project officer, and Michael Christie. Rene delivered this speech to the Tasmanian Landcare Awards on 10 October this year. She said:

    There is no doubt that Landcare is filled with that 'special kind of someone'. The commitment and passion embodied within Landcare volunteers leaves those that work in the industry humbled, in awe of what can be and often is achieved by people.

  • 1.     Notes Tasmania has more coastline per unit area than any other state in Australia.

    2.     Notes that about 80–90% of species of most marine groups are endemic to Tasmania, compared to only 10% of species in most groups in northern tropical waters.

    3.     Notes that only 1.1% of Tasmania’s immediate waters are within no-take marine protected areas.

    4.     Calls on the government to expand no-take zones within marine reserve areas based on scientific advice.
