The Premier’s biosecurity announcement today is window dressing and seriously misleading. Since 2015, the Palaszczuk Government has reduced the number of Animal Welfare and Biosecurity inspectors by 13, from 64 to 51 positions. In May, it was revealed the Palaszczuk Government had also failed to fill 5 vacant positions in the department. Both these facts were confirmed by the Agriculture Minister to Parliament. Queenslanders can see the answer to the Question on Notice. documents.parliament.qld.gov.au/tableoffice/questionsanswers/2022/373-2022.pdf Why does the Palaszczuk Government only act after there is a crisis on our doorstep? Where is the planning and vision for our state? Queenslanders are growing tired of lurching from one crisis to another because the Palaszczuk Government cannot properly plan for the future. Today’s PR stunt by the Premier proves she presides over a government that is all about announcements and showmanship instead of protecting our great Queensland way of life. The Premier and the Agriculture Minister have been habitually slow to act on biosecurity issues and the department has been underfunded and understaffed on their watch. An outbreak of foot and mouth disease would be catastrophic with wide-reaching effects to our agricultural industries, and rural and regional communities. Today’s announcement proves this government only cares about how things look, not how they are. Queenslanders deserve better than this. ... See MoreSee Less

Queenslanders are questioning the Palaszczuk Government after it failed to pass on a $175 energy rebate. This promise was made almost three months ago but the Palaszczuk Government failed to organise it with energy retailers. This failure comes at a time when the cost-of-living crisis is deepening for families. Queenslanders would have factored this rebate into their budgets but it hasn’t arrived. It’s inexcusable. The rebate must be included in the next bill. Cost-of-living pressures may not matter to the Palaszczuk Government but it matters to Queenslanders. This is just another example of the State Government only caring about the announcement to make themselves look good instead of actually delivering for Queenslanders. Queenslanders deserve better. ... See MoreSee Less

This will go down as one of the most wasteful uses of taxpayers money in Queensland history. In the middle of a health crisis, the State Government prioritised politics over the genuine needs of Queenslanders.Healthcare workers right across the state are struggling.They need more support!!They need more resources!!Instead, the State Government spent a quarter of a billion dollars on a nearly empty quarantine facility.Decisions Matter!The State Government cares more about how things look rather than how things really are. ...
