Question to the Minister for Education, Children and Youth

The Report from the Commission of Inquiry into the Tasmanian Government’s Response to Child Sexual Abuse on Institutional Setting was table in Parliament yesterday. Also yesterday, I asked Minister Jaensch a simple question. The Minister had the perfect opportunity to set the tone for transparency and re-building trust and in my opinion he failed badly. The Minister refused to answer my question. Later, my colleague John Tucker – Independent for Lyons repeated the question and the Minister again, refused to answer the question.
How can the Premier talk about building trust if one of his own Ministers continues to obfuscate and hide behind the perpetual bureaucratic wall of silence and deflection?
