Cassy O’Connor MP | Greens’ Leader
The Liberals are playing catch up on the growing level of foreign ownership and influence in Tasmania.
Tasmanians know foreign investors are impacting on the housing market and that almost 25% of our agricultural land has some level of foreign ownership.
Cashed up overseas buyers are not going to be dissuaded by a small tax hit. The Liberals' policy will make no difference to housing availability, nor will it mean any less agricultural land ends up in foreign hands.
