Greens claim $20m package role

Media Release
Bob Brown 24 May 2012

Australian Greens Senator for Tasmania Bob Brown welcomed today’s announcement by the Gillard government of a $20m Bass Strait transport package, though it is not enough.

“Senator Milne and I have worked hard to win help for Tasmania’s exporters with repeated direct approaches to the Prime Minister, the Treasurer and other Ministers,” said Senator Brown.

“But there is much more to be done.  For example, the fact that Hobart is the only capital which does not have the National Highway system enter and leave it must be rectified,” Senator Brown said.
