Latest News from the Tasmanian Liberals
Leonie Hiscutt, Liberal Member for Montgomery
Last year in Parliament Labor voted with the Greens a record 81 per cent of the time. With Rebecca White now having dumped all Labor policies, it’s a record that looks set to be broken again this year.
The Labor-Green alliance is still trying hold Tasmania back. They both oppose mandatory sentences for child sex offenders, oppose sensible, sustainable and job creating tourism developments in national parks, and both oppose the Mt Wellington cable car.
