Prime Minister,

RE: University Relocation Funding For Utas in Launceston

As a member of a network of concerned citizens, residents and Launceston ratepayers I helped arrange for the OPEN LETTER to you
( ) sent to your office plus the offices of The Treasurer and Minister for Education back in March. Given development in the Bass Electorate and the Public Meeting held in Launceston’s Albert Hall last Tuesday I believe that it is timely that I draw your attention to that letter again.

There is considerable disquiet in the electorate in regard to Launceston Council’s imprudent and cavalier ‘gifting’ of public land with enormous environmental problems attached to the site – not to mention the social and cultural concerns the gift raises.
