Labor Matter of Public Importance - Northern Prison

Rosalie Woodruff MP - 29 October 2019
Madam Deputy Speaker, it is interesting listening to both Labor and Liberal members utterly failing their communities. It is sad to hear the tone of this debate, which totally misses the point that what is good for Tasmania is putting money into restorative justice.

Liberal Matter of Public Importance - Jobs in Building and Construction

Rosalie Woodruff MP - 17 October 2019
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.

Twamley Dam and Prosser River Pipeline

Rosalie Woodruff MP - 17 October 2019
Water on the east coast is scarce and very precious. Regional climate heating models tell us it will continue to dry. This dam and pipeline proposal for the benefit of two water-squandering private companies should never have been considered. Now that the council as pulled the plug on the project, will you rule out giving any more public finance to the Twamley dam and Prosser pipeline process?
