Police statement

I note today's statement from Tasmania Police regarding the tragic death of an infant in Launceston earlier this year.

As I said at the time, it’s important not to jump to conclusions and to allow the Police and the Coroner to do their respective jobs.

The Hodgman Government remains committed to rebuilding the child protection system and investing an additional $51 million in child protection including more child safety workers.
