Tasmania Shadow Attorney-General Vanessa Goodwin

Tobacco Donations

Victor P Taffa

Attorney-General Brian Wightman’s move to ban tobacco donations is nothing more than an attempt to manipulate the law to try and gain political advantage, according to Shadow Attorney-General Vanessa Goodwin.

“Let’s be clear: this isn’t about public health, this is about manipulating the law to disadvantage Labor’s political opponents.” Ms. Goodwin said.

“If it was about health, then surely Mr. Wightman would also ban donations from fast food and alcohol companies?”

“It’s a shameful new low not just for this incompetent Attorney-General but also for Tasmanian politics.”Ms. Goodwin said.
