The Tasmanian Liberal Senate Team: Advancing Tasmania’s interests.

STATEMENT

Tasmanian Liberal Senate Team

The Tasmanian Liberal Senate Team which I am honoured to lead combines experience with new talent. We are fully committed to serving our fellow Tasmanians and seeing the reelection of the Coalition Government led by Prime Minister Turnbull.

The Liberals will be putting forward to Tasmania a strong, confident and invigorated Senate team made up of Senator Stephen Parry, Mr Jonathon Duniam, Senator David Bushby, Senator Richard Colbeck, Mr John Tucker and myself. This team will work hand-in-glove with the Three Amigos, Eric Hutchinson, Andrew Nikolic and Brett Whiteley along with Liberal Candidates Amanda-Sue Markham and Marcus Allan.

The Tasmanian Liberal Federal Team has already achieved:

 Delivery of the $203 million Tasmanian Freight Equalisation Scheme enhancement for exports;  Five irrigation schemes;  Highway upgrades;  The Antarctic Air Link;  Innovation funding; and  Seafood being included in Free Trade Agreements.

A reelected Turnbull Liberal Government, with six Tasmanian Liberal Senators, would be in an even stronger position to advance Tasmania’s interests - for starters, the Senate could pass Coastal Shipping Reform which would mean more jobs in Tasmania as well as build on the strong record of job creation since 2013.

This is a strong team who would absolutely advance Tasmania’s interests.
