Thank you Mr Speaker.
My question is to the Premier.
Premier, on the 9th of November last year I tabled a petition signed by 1036 Tasmanians calling on the Government to defer all wind farm developments in this State until world’s best practice is adopted by the EPA and an updated Threatened Tasmanian Eagles Recovery Plan is in place.
A response to this petition was due on 3 May this year, and to date nothing has been received. In fact, it seems that eight petitions are yet to be responded to by your Minsters, some dating back to March last year.
Premier, fundamental to our system of Government, citizens have the right to petition, and the right to expect their Government to respond.
Premier, why are your Ministers not responding to the voices of the people?
