• Liberals don’t want to consult, refuse to collaborate
• Attorney General not interested in getting the best laws for Tasmania
The Liberal Government’s response to Labor’s call for tougher, more comprehensive organised crime legislation is disappointing.
Elise Archer is the same Attorney General who earlier this year declared her door was open to improving legislation – yet today she’s slammed the door in Labor’s face on a thorough, well-consulted policy that actually targets criminals and organised crime.
Shadow Police Minister Shane Broad said Labor was open to finding common ground with the Government, as has been called for by community leaders.
“For the Government to ignore the legislation’s obvious flaws and reject Labor’s position out of hand shows that their priority is political point scoring and not getting the best, toughest anti-organised crime legislation through both houses of Tasmania’s Parliament,” Dr Broad said.
“Labor MPs are happy to sit down with the government to work on redrafting the legislation to get the best result for law enforcement and the community.”
