Government should release Treasury building advice

  • Treasurer should release more than just the heritage report                
  • Everything should be on the table to allow for a proper discussion               

Shadow Treasurer Scott Bacon has welcomed the release of one report relating to Hobart’s Treasury building but said the Government should go further.

“Peter Gutwein and Will Hodgman should now release all documentation relating to the Treasury building to inform the public debate,” Mr Bacon said.

“It took pressure from the media and opposition for the Treasurer to release a basic heritage report. This government is addicted to secrecy.

“The Treasurer should release the advice he says urged the Government not to use the building for alternate purposes.

“Let’s put everything on the table so we can have a proper discussion about the future potential of the building.

“The Hodgman Government’s tendency for secrecy is holding Tasmania back.”
