TASMANIAN FOREST AGREEMENT INITIAL PROPOSED RESERVE ORDER 2013

Mrs ARMITAGE ( Launceston ) - Mr President, I will start with a submission we all received last night from Andrew Denman - I have permission to use his name. I want a little clarification from the leader, in his summing up, with regard to it and I will quote the first paragraph of Andrew's submission: Nothing would please me more than to be able to say that we support this durability report, the government's response to its efficiencies and subsequently the continuation of the legislation. I would also like to be able to say that since passing of the TFA legislation earlier this year, there has been good progress made in resolving the issues that we have highlighted to you all regarding spec

SPECIAL INTEREST MATTERS ST. GILES - WALK WITH ME EVENT

Mrs ARMITAGE ( Launceston ) - Mr President, in the spring of 1937 a public meeting was held in Launceston at the Town Hall in response to the polio epidemic. From that simple community meeting an institution was born. That institution is St Giles.

MOTION - NOTE REPORT INTEGRATED SUSTAINABLE PUBLIC TRANSPORT SYSTEM IN SOUTHERN TASMANIA

Mrs ARMITAGE ( Launceston ) - Mr President, I too shall make a short contribution. Before I start, the member for Windermere asked me to mention something he had forgotten during his contribution. He wanted me to mention that between 1999 and 2000 - and I imagine that was probably the time he would have been the commander of police in Launceston - there were many assaults. It was probably the time that assaults peaked in Launceston , particularly late at night. One of the changes made to try to alleviate the assaults was that Metro put on more buses. It did help because the feeling was that people were stuck in the city after probably long periods of drinking late at night; they could not ge

PROFESSOR BERNI EINODER - TRIBUTE

Mrs ARMITAGE ( Launceston ) - Mr President, I speak today about one of Australia's top surgeons, Professor Berni Einoder, and the contribution he has made during his time in the role of director of surgery at the Launceston General Hospital. Professor Einoder recently announced his intention to retire from this position but thankfully he will continue teaching at the medical school, and with his surgical practice in Launceston . I asked him recently how he saw his contribution to the LGH, and he simply said: I have achieved a few things in my time in Launceston , but to be fair it was always a team effort and it has been my privilege to have been the captain of a wonderful group of professio
