Electricity is an essential service. The Tasmanian Government has an obligation to provide the infrastructure needed to deliver that electricity at the lowest possible cost.
Cassy O’Connor MP | Greens' Leader and Forests spokesperson
The Premier has been exposed for misleading the Tasmanian people when he said in April 2014 that his government would not be privatizing public assets.
In Parliament today, we asked how selling the 29 000 hectares with a 99 year lease on the land is not privatization. Mr Hodgman didn’t even go close to answering.
To hide behind a 99 year lease and claim it isn’t privatization is just dishonest. This is the Liberals selling the farm and trying to mislead Tasmanians in the process.
