The Tasmanian Liberals’ campaign for more Commonwealth public service jobs is an insulting sham, with hundreds of Tasmanian public service workers losing their jobs under the Turnbull and Hodgman Governments.

The latest State of the Service Report revealed Tasmania lost more than 400 Commonwealth public servants in 2017 alone.

When Labor was in Government in 2013 there were 4239 Commonwealth public servants in Tasmania - the latest figures show there are now just 3468.
