Boscutti Report - Hodgman claims mandate for secrecy

HOBART (Boscutti Report) — Tasmanian Premier Will Hodgman has declared he has a mandate to keep 200 policies secret that were released to interest groups and not made available for public scrutiny during the state election campaign.

Mr Hodgman said he wanted to be transparent with the voters of Tasmania.

‘They deserve to know that secrets deals are being done behind their backs that are not in their own interests,’ he said. ‘Of course they’ll never find out what those deals are.’

A spokesman said most secret backroom deals were bound by confidentiality agreements.

‘Will is all about law and order,’ he said.
