Mrs PETRUSMA – The budget Estimates showed that in my portfolios of Aboriginal Affairs, Women, Sport and Recreation, Disability Services and Community Development, we have a great deal to be proud of in these areas.

Building on the gains we have made so far, the Hodgman Government is committed to continuing the reset of our relationship with the Tasmanian Aboriginal people.  During Estimates I was asked to provide an update on our 2017-18 key activities on our resetting the relationship with the Tasmanian Aboriginal community, which I will now provide to the House as well as to table.  Keeping in mind that this document is provided on an annual basis and it is the 2017-18 update and 30 June was only four days ago, I thank the department in being able to provide this update.
