Thank Mr Speaker.

My question is to the Leader of Government Business.

Minister, for the last two days I have sat at home following public health orders and watched on in utter frustration that I have been unable to participate and represent my constituents on the very important matters this house has been debating.

Minister, the rest of the world, both private and public sector – including federal and other parliaments and local government, have managed to allow people to participate in workplace activities remotely.

Given the high numbers of COVID currently circulating in Tasmania and that yesterday we had one independent, two government members, one opposition member and one green out – a fifth of this already small house– when will you bring this parliament into the twenty first century and provide remote access to the business of the house?
