Rene HiddingOPPOSITION police spokesman Rene Hidding has described the Government’s handling of the State’s new $1.18 million police boat Fortescue as farcical.Police Minister Jim Cox told Budget Estimates Hearings in Hobart today that there were still problems with the new vessel which is yet to be put into service.”The farcical PV Fortescue saga continued today with news that the Australian Maritime College will be contracted to investigate a range of problems that the Minister has finally admitted exist,” he said.”What we have here is a vessel that could well be six months away from seeing active duty because the Government has again been proved to be incapable of managing public projects.” Mr Hidding accused the Government of bungled every single step of the project, from avoiding a normal tender process to the design and construction of the vessel.”The only positive point from Estimates today is the Police Ministers confirmation that he is implementing a number of Tasmanian Liberals policies, including high visibility police patrol cars, confiscating the cars of dangerous drivers and implementing police driver in-service training,” he said.
