Independent JLN Senator Elect for Tasmania Jacqui Lambie, has promised to co-operate and consult with all elected to the new Parliament to deliver a stable government and has urged all to focus on 4 immediate and important matters:
- $1.2B of Aged Care Cuts Nationally ($40M of Tasmanian cuts & 750 jobs threatened https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y4jbFvQTbm4)
3. Establishment of 50c Per/Litre Milk Levy for Dairy Farmers
4. Government Defence and other contracts to help increase local job and training opportunities
"In addition to addressing and fixing my 4 important matters, my message to whoever is going to form the new government - is to learn the lessons of the past and consult with crossbenchers before legislation is introduced to parliament." said Senator Lambie.
"In the past there was zero consultation with the community and crossbenchers before new controversial legislation was suddenly introduced to parliament. This caused a lot of the chaos and instability in the last parliament." said Senator Lambie.
"I also look forward to working closely with Tasmanian independent MP Andrew Wilkie to deliver for Tasmania in the new Parliament." said Senator Lambie.
