Labor Women’s Budget Statement

When Labor was in Government we produced a Women’s Budget Statement because we know that budgets impact strongly on the women in our community. Unfortunately when the Liberals came to Government in 2014, they decided to axe the Women’s Budget Statement because they wanted to hide how women are impacted by their policies, cuts and spending. Since then we have produced a budget statement from Opposition.

It was great to attend the launch with some of my Tasmanian Labor colleagues and catch up with Liz Callaghan, CEO of Palliative Care Australia.
