Federal Member for Bass Ross Hart MP welcomes Prime Minister Turnbull’s signing of the Launceston City Deal.

“I am thrilled that the Prime Minister has finally signed the deal for the UTas transformation project, following Labor’s plan for a positive future for Bass by improving the educational standards of Tasmania,” Mr Hart said.

The Liberals are still playing catch up in Northern Tasmania.

Yesterday saw the Federal Liberal Government throw a further $2 million at yet another study of the Tamar’s aging sewerage system.

“The Prime Minister needs to commit to funding this critical infrastructure now, action on upgrading the Tamar’s combined sewerage cannot be delayed for a further election cycle”, Mr Hart said.

The $2.5 million feasibility study into Hydro is more of Mr Turnbull talking. State Labor have identified a number of projects that are ready to go, Tasmanian’s want to know when will Malcolm Turnbull stop talking and start acting.

Tasmania welcomes any increase in energy capacity, we all remember too well the energy failures of the state Liberal government last summer.
