  • Dr WOODRUFF question to MINISTER for HEALTH, Ms COURTNEY

  • Dr WOODRUFF question to TREASURER, Mr GUTWEIN

    In 2016 your Government loaned $6 million to the cash-strapped Glamorgan Spring Bay Council to construct the controversial Prosser River dam at Twamley in the middle of 50 hectares of endangered swift parrot habitat and a pipeline to run water to Tassal's fish farm in Okehampton Bay and a ludicrous Solis golf course proposal.

  • Ms O'CONNOR (Clark - Leader of the Greens) - Madam Speaker, following on from what the minister for Education was talking about then, I take the opportunity to talk about the Commissioner Children and Young People's outstanding Ambassador Program.

  • Dr WOODRUFF (Franklin) - Mr Deputy Speaker, the Greens will not be supporting the amendment to this motion. We support the motion that it seeks to amend and I will make some comments about that. I am aware that Ms Butler would also like to speak so I will make some time for her to do that and make a shorter contribution.

    The point which speaks most strongly to me in the Labor motion is paragraph 2 - 'That we lament the secrecy and lack of consultation with the community prior to the announcement'.

    Dr WOODRUFF (Franklin) - Madam Speaker, I move:

    That the House -

  • Ms O'CONNOR (Clark - Leader of the Greens) - Madam Speaker, the House and the minister will be well aware that when this bill was first tabled we raised a number of concerns about its content, the justification for it and particularly in relation to the proposed section 13, which is the heavy-handed section.

  • Ms O'CONNOR (Clark - Leader of the Greens) - Mr Deputy Speaker, this is a very interesting and significant debate, particularly for young Tasmanians who are looking for affordable public vocational training options.

  • Ms O'CONNOR (Clark - Leader of the Greens) - Madam Speaker, I rise on behalf of the Greens to speak on the Burial and Cremation Bill 2019 and to indicate that in broad terms we support this legislation. However, we are proposing an amendment to deal with the issue Ms Dow was talking about in relation to the use of private land for cemeteries.

  • Ms O'CONNOR (Clark - Leader of the Greens) - Mr Deputy Speaker, I rise on behalf of the Tasmanian Greens to express our sincere condolences at the premature death of the honourable John Bennett and to acknowledge a life very well lived as a proud and passionate Tasmanian.

  • Ms O'CONNOR (Clark - Leader of the Greens) - Mr Deputy Speaker, now that one of the laziest, most dishonest Treasurers Tasmania has ever seen has taken his seat, I would like to deal with some of the mistruths he has laid on the parliamentary record.
