Resignation of Matthew Groom

Cassy O’Connor MP | Greens' Leader

The resignation of Matthew Groom from Cabinet and from Parliament at the next election highlights the need to restore the numbers in the House of Assembly.

With Mr Groom out of Cabinet, the pressure is now on the Premier to fill his empty Cabinet position from a shallow pool of backbenchers that includes disgraced former Minister, Adam Brooks.

When the Premier of the day is scraping around the backbench for a Minister as a result of the bad decision to cut the numbers, it is unhealthy for good governance in Tasmania.
