Air-con backflip a win for kids – and the LNP

Published:

LNP Leader Deb Frecklington has welcomed the Palaszczuk Labor Government's decision to finally adopt the LNP's policy of air-conditioning every state school in Queensland.

The stunning backflip came after the Palaszczuk Labor Government spent the last two years attacking the LNP's air-conditioning commitment.

"This is a big win for the LNP, but most importantly it's a big win for Queensland kids and teachers," Ms Frecklington said.

"The LNP has campaigned for air-conditioning in all our state schools because we know kids struggle to learn in hot classrooms.

"I have always argued that cool kids are smart kids.

"But the LNP's air-con campaign is not over – because Labor has broken previous promises on air-con and with Labor, the devil is always in the detail."

LNP Shadow Education Minister Jarrod Bleijie called on Labor to release the secret audit that it claims prompted today's backflip.

"Labor has spent two years ridiculing the LNP's plan and now they are re-badging it as their own," Mr Bleijie said.

"Parents should be cautious about this announcement because Labor has broken every previous promise it has made on air-conditioning in schools.

"Labor won't say when this audit was commissioned or what is in it.

"Annastacia Palaszczuk needs to come clean and release this secret audit immediately.

"Labor's spin has to stop – parents and schools need to see the detail in this plan."
