Where: Lecture Theatre 115, Medical Science Precinct, Menzies Institute 17 Liverpool St, Hobart, TAS 7000

Who:

The Hon Meg Webb is the Independent Member for the seat of Nelson in the Tasmanian Legislative Council.

Bill Browne is the Democracy and Accountability Program Director at the Australia Institute.

Eloise Carr is the Director of the Australia Institute Tasmania, and will MC the event.

Ms Carr said: “Tasmanians will go to the polls on March 23 without truth in political advertising laws or robust oversight of donations.

“Voters deserve to know where politicians get their funding and in real time. The limited laws passed by the Tasmanian parliament last year do not go far enough to deliver integrity in Tasmanian politics.”
