Doomsday David

Peter Gutwein,Premier

I have categorically ruled out job cuts in the public sector as recently as the last parliamentary sitting.

I thought I had made that very clear, however it appears that Mr O’Byrne has selective hearing.

As I have said, the Review of the State Service aims to identify structural, operational, service, practice and legislative improvements to ensure the public service is in the best shape to deliver the services Tasmania needs.

Mr O’Byrne needs to stop scaremongering, and stop causing unnecessary fear in the community at a time when people are already facing unprecedented challenges.

While Mr O’Byrne is using every opportunity to talk down our economy, we will continue to deliver our plan to grow jobs and rebuild the economy so Tasmania can return to the economic powerhouse it was prior to the COVID-19 pandemic.
