LABOR CONFERENCE: The Kingborough branch is asking delegates to support lifting the age to 25 for Tasmanians to be able to buy tobacco products.

Raising the age to 25 that tobacco products can be sold to Tasmanians and increasing Newstart by $50 a week are among motions to be debated at the Labor Party’s state conference.
