The following link is a submission that the Tasmanian Branch have put forward regarding King Island Shipping, an inquiry was called by Ruth Forrest MLC seeking submissions into the Shipping and Freight future of the island.
The submission states the MUA’s position and recommendations for the future of King Island Shipping after close to 12 months of nothing short of a debacle at the hand of the Hodgman Liberal Government.
The submission was sent to the Tasmanian Legislative Council.
