Another no to Uni Tas city move

Andrew Wilkie wants an independent inquiry into the university’s move to the CBD

The member for the federal seat of Clark, which includes the university and Hobart city, has reversed his original position and now says he will vote against the relocation in the  non-binding vote, held in conjunction with the Hobart local government election, this month. And in The Mercury newspaper he calls for the project to “pause” and for, “a commission of inquiry into it.”

The move is fiercely opposed by a campaign that wants U Tas to stay in Sandy Bay, rather than the site there being developed for housing.

There is already a Legislative Council inquiry into the governance of the university.
