Labor has no plan for a Northern Regional Prison other than to crabwalk away from it, putting 1000 jobs on ice.

The Northern Regional Prison is an important part of our plan to Secure Tasmania’s Future as it will create jobs and secure $500 million in economic activity for the region, when it will be needed most as we continue to recover from COVID-19.

Importantly, we have consulted extensively and the Project remains on track, the due diligence for planning is well underway and, if we are re-elected, we are committed to delivering it.

By crabwalking away from it, Ms White is putting thousands of jobs and millions of economic activity at risk, demonstrating yet again that she is indecisive and simply can’t make decisions that will benefit our State.
