Rockliff cannot explain where he will find $750 million for stadium

Tasmanian Labor

Premier
Jeremy Rockliff cannot explain how his government will come up with the $750
million to pay for the proposed floating sports stadium in Hobart.

The
Premier today was unable to explain where the money will come from, despite his
predecessor Peter Gutwein saying in March:

“We will seek to fund this across all levels of government, as well as
providing an opportunity for private sector involvement and equity raising.”

Surely
the new Premier should be able to answer fundamental, straight-forward
questions about taxpayer expenditure for this major proposal by his government.

Today, the
Premier has shown once again that the Rockliff-Ferguson Government is a rehash
of the same old secretive government Tasmanians have unfortunately come to
expect from the Liberal Party.

This is a divided, chaotic government – a government that Tasmanians did not vote for – presided over by weak leadership.
