The government needs to release the Memorandum of Understanding detailing the relationship between HydroChina, owned by the Chinese government, and Entura.

Tasmanians want to know about the government's plans for Entura, a publicly owned asset. Denials of a sell-off are meaningless without all the information being placed on the table.

Entura is a specialist power and water consulting firm. In the last financial year it contributed significantly to Hydro Tasmania’s positive financial performance. We can’t afford to sell off any assets without a transparent public discussion.

Minister Rockliff’s claim that the government is not selling Entura needs to be backed up by more than a radio one-liner.

Labelling questions about the secret deal that’s been signed as ”scaremongering” is a distraction from reasonable community concerns.
