On Sunday 2 November 2008, Cabinet travelled to Queenstown for the fifth community forum in as many months.

Opening the Queenstown forum, the Premier mentioned that he had been looking forward to coming to the West Coast because it has been such a vital part to the development of Tasmania over the last 150 years or so. The wealth that is generated in the local area is a real driver for Tasmania’s economy.

Prior to the community forum the Premier unveiled a plaque to celebrate the 50th anniversary of public education on the same site in Queenstown. He also announced a grant of $3,000 to help replace the school’s old bus. The Premier said that transport was a vital part of the support infrastructure for any school and was pleased that he could contribute something towards that.

On Monday 3 November, Cabinet met with the West Coast Council and had the opportunity to discuss issues of importance to the West Coast area.
