The Tasmanian Majority Liberal Government welcomes the appointment of Senator Richard Colbeck as Assistant Minister for Agriculture and Water Resources.

Senator Colbeck has been a passionate advocate for Tasmania, and particularly our state’s vital agricultural sector, over many years. His reappointment to a Ministerial position is good news for Tasmania.

By working with the Federal Coalition Government we have secured many positive outcomes and important investments across our State. I look forward to working constructively with Prime Minister Scott Morrison and his Government to continue to deliver positive results for Tasmania.
