Independent Member for Windermere for the Legislative Council, Ivan Dean, says he sees ‘little value’ in what he believes to be an obstructionist upper house.

The MLC speaks with Brian Carlton about his views on the current state of the Legislative Council, stating that tensions came to a head last year and he believes that a unicameral parliament – like in Queensland – could potentially work in Tasmania.

This is despite the fact that a unicameral system would see Mr Dean lose his parliamentary position. Listen to the conversation below.
