First Test For Liberal-Lambie Coalition 22 May 2024

Tas Labor

Jeremy Rockliff’s coalition with the Jacqui Lambie Network faces its first test today as to whether it will support regional jobs.

The JLN came into the Tasmanian Parliament without a single policy to its name. Now is the time for them to be clear about where they stand.

Labor’s motion* today is about demonstrating the new Parliament’s commitment to regional jobs and the families and communities they support.

Tasmanians know Labor supports well paid, safe and secure jobs. We always will.

This is the first test for Jeremy Rockliff’s JLN coalition. Will the JLN support regional jobs, or will it split from its coalition partner and vote with the Greens?
