Speaker demands apology from Labor Leader following Tas Talks interview


The Speaker of the House of Assembly, Sue Hickey, has written to Labor Leader Rebecca White, demanding she apologise for comments made on Tasmania Talks last Thursday.

Off the back of the Speaker’s bid for a 40% pay rise for herself, and some questionable actions in Parliament, the Leader of the Opposition told Brian Carlton the Speaker was no longer impartial and had let the power go to her head.
