Latest News from the Tasmanian Liberals
Sarah Courtney, Minister for Health
The Hodgman majority Liberal Government is focused on delivering our plan to build a better health system for all Tasmanians.
Today I had the pleasure of opening the $2.5 million redevelopment of the Cecelia Button Hospital Wing of the Midlands Multi-Purpose Health Centre (MMPHC), our 2018 election commitment.
The project completed by Tasmanian business Fairbrother Construction will allow health care providers to deliver better health outcomes for patients from across the Southern Midlands and Bothwell regions.
Will Hodgman, Premier
The Tasmanian Government has backed Australia’s bid to host the FIFA Women’s World Cup in 2023.
If the bid is successful, Tasmanian fans could have the opportunity to see world class football stars during three group stage matches at UTAS Stadium in Launceston.
It would position Tasmania strongly on the world stage, with international players and fans visiting our island home and sampling all we have to offer.
Jeremy Rockliff, Minister for Education and Training
The Allport Library and Museum of Fine Arts in Hobart is now home to an extraordinary collection of Bauldin sketches, valued at more than $1 million.
The collection of unique drawings were made on a visit to Bruny Island, D’Entrecasteaux Channel and Maria Island in 1802 by the French expedition led by Baudin.
This donation is one of the most generous the Allport Library and Museum of Fine Arts has ever received.
Elise Archer, Minister for Building and Construction
The Hodgman majority Liberal Government is committed to keeping Tasmanians safe and I am pleased a new campaign is underway to raise awareness about the potentially deadly dangers of silica dust.
A key element of the campaign is a television commercial which warns Tasmanians that inhaling even a tiny amount of silica dust can cause deadly silicosis.
Peter Gutwein, Minister for Environment, Parks and Heritage
It’s no wonder that Jennifer Houston has been sent out on this ‘smoke screen’ press conference rather than the Shadow Treasurer.
These regulations are nothing more than an update of the original regulations, which have been in place for more than a decade and implemented by the Labor Government.
Jennifer Houston should have checked her facts first before allowing herself to be stitched up by her own party.
There is no “fire pot tax”.
Elise Archer, Minister for Corrections
Today I was pleased to commence one on one consultation meetings over coming weeks with Westbury community members regarding the new Northern Regional Prison as part of the ongoing broader engagement program.
Meeting invitations were sent to more than 1,900 Meander Valley households and businesses with an offer to meet with me to discuss the prison project.
For me, this is an opportunity to hear firsthand from community members, which is important to inform the decision making process for the facility.
Guy Barnett, Minister for Primary Industries and Water
The Hodgman majority Liberal Government is the strongest supporter of our world class inland fisheries and we are proud Tasmania could host the world’s best anglers as part of the 39th Fips Mouche World Fly Fishing Championship (WFFC).
During the past week an estimated 1000 anglers, support crew and visitors from 23 countries have been experiencing our internationally renowned inland fisheries and some extremely challenging cold and windy conditions.
