It is disappointing that such an important issue to communities across Tasmania has now become the subject of scaremongering.

There is no tax and the reality is that only the church can decide how they price their plots.

It’s important to highlight the Burial and Cremation Act 2002 already requires cemetery managers to maintain the cemetery, allow public access and honour exclusive rights of burial.

The Government expects the Anglican Church would have engaged with the consultation process in good faith.

We will consider all feedback provided through the consultation process in the coming weeks.
