Latest News from the Tasmanian Liberals
Guy Barnett, Liberal Member for Lyons
It is clear that Madeleine Ogilvie's re-election to Parliament has thrown Labor into chaos this morning.
And the question is, where is Rebecca White in all of this? Where is the leadership?
Labor’s faceless men and women are clearly at war behind the scenes on whether they want her or not - especially as they were the ones who campaigned to boot Ms Ogilvie from Parliament in the first place.
Elise Archer, Attorney-General and Minster for Justice
Important reforms to streamline and improve the operation of the Magistrates Court are one step closer, with the Magistrates Court (Criminal and General) Bill today passing the House of Assembly.

You simply cannot trust Labor when it comes to the funding of Ambulance Tasmania.
Under increasing pressure to keep her job, Rebecca White in Question Time today resorted to either deliberately misleading Tasmanians, or admitting she simply does not understand how the State Budget works.
The fact is, the Hodgman majority Liberal Government’s 2019-20 State Budget invests $438 million over the next four years in Ambulance Tasmania.
Jeremy Rockliff, Minister for Education and Training
A total of $20 million has been allocated as part of the Hodgman majority Liberal Government’s plan to ensure Tasmania has the skilled workforce it needs to support our growing economy.
