The Tasmanian Government has avoided committing to a further roll-out of natural gas, despite questioning in Parliament.

The Opposition claims it is failing to deliver on a promise to Tasmanians.

Liberal spokesman Will Hodgman says former premier Jim Bacon committed to provide natural gas to 100,000 households and businesses.

Mr Hodgman asked the Government whether it is negotiating with PowerCo to roll-out the next stage of the gas network and what subsidies will be offered.

Minister for Economic Development, Lara Giddings, told the House of Assembly that the Government's commitment was to roll-out gas to 38,000 customers, which it is currently doing.
