Tasmania's interest in the movement towards federation in Australia first found expression almost immediately after the attainment of responsible government in 1856. In 1857 Charles Duffy, newly elected to the Victorian Legislative Assembly, persuaded the Victorian Parliament to appoint a select committee which recommended that an intercolonial conference be held to frame a plan of federation for the Australian colonies. The Tasmanian government hopefully appointed delegates to the conference, but it was never held. A change of government in New South Wales prevented recommendations based on the Victorian report from being adopted. However Tasmania maintained a continued interest in intercolonial matters.
