Mrs ARMITAGE (Launceston) - I was certainly of a mind to support the member for Huon's amendment of a select committee in order to keep this bill alive. I do support this bill but I also believe 'act in haste, repent at leisure'. I believe that the motion before us at...

Mrs ARMITAGE (Launceston) - I wish to say to the member for Apsley, I have been upstairs listening to every passionate word.

First, I thank everyone who has phoned, sent emails, letters and briefed us over the days and weeks. I admit that as the briefings continued, my...

Mrs ARMITAGE ( Launceston ) - I will keep to the bill. As of 1 July 2009, as we all know, three local-government-owned corporations took over delivery and maintenance of water and sewerage services in Tasmania. In the north, Ben Lomond Water provided these services. In...

Mrs ARMITAGE ( Launceston ) - I appreciated the briefings we had today on this matter. I will not speak too long because most of it has been already said. I am still having difficulty with this bill. While I appreciate the urgency in view of the further appeal being li...

Mrs ARMITAGE ( Launceston ) - It has been very well put by the previous speakers. I am generally supportive of this bill to tidy up the act but I will not be supporting clause 6. It sets a precedent and where do we stop? We could deny political parties the opportunity...

Mrs ARMITAGE ( Launceston ) - I believe that it is appropriate for this to go to committee and I thank the members for their moving contributions. We must recognise the past and look to the future. There does appear to have been a lack of consultation with all stakehol...

Mrs ARMITAGE ( Launceston ) - This is a difficult issue. I appreciate how few people can donate, dependent on their death, which makes this motion even more important. I note the previous 2008 Legislative Council select committee report and its comprehensiveness. Howev...

Mrs ARMITAGE ( Launceston ) - I commend the board for the work it has done in the past and the provision of the data collection. I concur with the government that it is a luxury we can ill afford at the current time. To me, Tasmania Together is something we have in goo...

Mrs ARMITAGE ( Launceston ) - I rise to support the honourable member for Western Tiers as I believe penalty rates are crippling many industries in Tasmania. All too often we hear tourists and locals alike bemoaning the fact that restaurants, hotels and other eateries...

October 17, 2012

Mrs ARMITAGE ( Launceston ) - I support the principle of the bill. I particularly thank the students for the many briefings we had this morning. I thought they performed extremely well. They were competent, as was said by the member for Murchison, and it is not an easy...
