Infrastructure Minister David O’Byrne must come clean and confirm if shipping industry rumours are correct and TT line is looking at purchasing up to two freight-only ships to carry freight across Bass Strait, according to Shadow Minister for Infrastructure Rene Hidding.
“The Minister must be fully transparent in this matter.”
“The purchase of one or more dedicated freight-only vessels by the TT-Line would be a significant departure from their traditional business model. It would intrude significantly into an area currently serviced by the private sector.”
“Mr. O’Byrne must clearly place on the public record what the Government is planning.” Mr. Hidding said.
