Ministerial Statement - COVID-19 Response Measures

Rosalie Woodruff MP - 17 March 2020
It is good to hear some of the things that the Premier has just announced but I am saddened in reading and listening to him about the lack of attention to the urgent issue which needs to be addressed today and that relates to the restrictions for the safety and wellbeing of Tasmanians.

Cassy O'Connor MP - 5 March 2020
We brought this on as a matter of public importance today because public trust in our institutions is essential. For the public to be able to have a measure of faith in the integrity of ministers of the Crown is essential and a foundational aspect of our democracy.

Greens Matter of Public Importance - WorkSafe Tasmania and the Bob Brown Foundation

Rosalie Woodruff MP - 5 March 2020
The Liberals, the Labor Party and the Independent are all doing the same thing: they are creating a faux risk here but this is not what this issue is about. The real risk people are protesting peacefully in the forest is because they understand the climate is heating.

Labor Matter of Public Importance - Spirits of Tasmania

Rosalie Woodruff MP - 4 March 2020
If it is true that the docking point in Victoria is to be moved from its current position in Port Melbourne to Geelong that would have far reaching consequences for all Tasmanians who seek to travel on the Spirit to avoid flying because they cannot fly or they want to take their vehicles and not fly for that reason.

Donations Disclosure Laws

While your predecessor agreed to reform and review the Electoral Act, tepid and drawn out though it is, you appear to have walked away from any strengthening of Tasmania's nation-leading weakest donations disclosure laws.
