Ferguson Responsible for Health Failures, Must Release Deloitte Report

Rosalie Woodruff MP | Greens' Health spokesperson 

The Health Minister should release the report into the operations of the Tasmanian Health Service Executive, so Tasmanians can have the full picture of what’s going on in our hospitals.

Andrea Dawkins MP | Greens' Water spokesperson

The Auditor-General’s report into TasWater confirms what we knew - TasWater inherited a large amount of work to be done over a short period of time, but progress has been significant.

Andrea Dawkins MP | Greens' Water spokesperson 

The Liberals' highly political plan to takeover TasWater has received another blow today, with Chair Miles Hampton exposing the high cost Tasmanians will pay for the Liberals' plan.

This is a serious health concern, as particulate pollution is a known risk to people with respiratory and cardiac conditions, elderly people and children.
