Today an RTI was provided to Labor on cardiothoracic surgery as part of our commitment to be an open and transparent government.
The Hodgman Liberal Government is continuing to make improvements and greater investment to provide more cardiothoracic surgery here in Tasmania.
This is demonstrated through our actions to employ an additional surgeon, a perfusionist, as well as another elective surgery nurse.

The Tasmanian economy is seeing a “modest lift in momentum” according to the latest State of the State report by CommSec.
The report highlights that there has been a “boost in an array of sectors, especially tourism”.
Tasmania is now ranked fifth on four of the indicators, which is a stark contrast to when we came to Government and Tasmania was last on every single CommSec measure.

Bryan Green's statement today that Labor "will govern in majority or not at all"* will be sending shudders of fear through his Labor colleagues.
Prior to today, Mr Green has maintained that he will attempt to govern on the floor of the house, even if he doesn't secure a majority.
Did he consult his colleagues before he made today's statement, which has likely consigned Labor to another six years in Opposition, at least?
Or was it just a spur of the moment statement boast made in the post EMRS afterglow?
Jeremy Rockliff, Acting Minister for the Arts
