Resources Minister, Guy Barnett, needs to back up his claim made in Parliament today that there are 'thousands' of Tasmanians employed in the native forest industry, or come back into the House and correct the record.
We believe Mr Barnett is the most recent Minister to mislead Parliament.
The most recent NAB State Update for Tasmania confirms that the forestry sector is in continued structural decline.
Cassy O'Connor MP | Greens Leader
We thought long and hard before bringing on a Motion of No Confidence in the Premier today. We recognise that such Parliamentary moves cannot be taken lightly or used frivolously.
Ultimately, given the events of the past week, last year and the Liberals' practices in the House over the past two years, we have no confidence in the Premier's capacity to lead an open, accountable and honest government.
