Tasmania Shadow Minister for Sustainable Transport Matthew Groom
Metro Dispute Splits Government
Victor P Taffa
Today’s Cabinet split over the Metro dispute is just the latest example of how the fragile Labor-Green experiment is falling apart at the seams, Shadow Minister for Sustainable Transport Matthew Groom said.
“Metro Minister Nick McKim is on the record supporting Metro’s actions. Now we have Minister David O’Byrne condemning them.”
“What is the Government’s position on the Metro dispute? Does it even have a position, or is it every Minister for themselves? Business has no confidence in this Government because they have no idea what it stands for or what it wants to do.” Mr. Groom said.
“Clearly the Government has lost control of this issue and it’s going to cause significant consequences for families and businesses that we simply cannot afford. This is an absolute shambles.” Mr. Groom said.
