An Expo will be held in October this year that will provide information and raise awareness about the range of services available for Tasmanians experiencing housing stress or who are at risk of homelessness.
Michael Ferguson, Minister for Science and Technology
Tasmania is home to some of the nation’s best scientists, and the Hodgman majority Liberal Government is committed to supporting our growing science and research community. We recognise that our scientific community is vital for our future economy, quality of life, health and security.
I was pleased to again host the annual Science Meets Parliament event at Parliament House tonight, which brings together our leading scientists with elected Tasmanian parliamentarians and policy makers.
The Hodgman majority Liberal Government welcomes the Legislative Council’s report which supports the development of the North East Rail corridor and recognises its economic benefits for the region.
The report recommends the establishment of a heritage rail line between Launceston and Lilydale, as well as supporting the development of a rail trail for cyclists and walkers from Lilydale to Scottsdale.
The $2 million helipad at the Mersey Community Hospital is now complete, meaning more patients in the North-West will receive the care they need sooner at the health facility that is best able to provide it.
The Hodgman majority Liberal Government is delivering on its plan to supercharge our aeromedical capacity as part of our $125 million package to boost ambulance services.
