Annastacia Palaszczuk’s unfair vegetation management laws are making it harder for Queensland farmers and graziers to keep to stock alive during the current drought ravaging rural and regional communities.

LNP Shadow Natural Resources Minister Dale Last slammed the Palaszczuk Government for enacting laws and then refusing to fund extension officers to help landholders cope with them.

“It’s clear that Labor’s new restrictions on using mulga trees to feed livestock have added extra red tape and untold stress to farmers struggling to keep what’s left of their sheep and cattle alive,” Mr Last said.

“Labor’s laws are unworkable when it comes to managing mulga as fodder through the drought with the situation only set to get worse if the drought deepens.

“These laws have to potential to create real animal welfare issues on properties, yet this government’s happy to sit by and let farmers and livestock suffer.

“To make matters worse, Minister Anthony Lynham has refused to fund new extension officers to support farmers and landholders as the laws are rolled out.

“These are real people with real emotions. It’s absolutely devastating that Labor’s willing to exploit the city country divide with these laws to snare extra votes in inner city Brisbane.

“While Labor refuses to build the dams that will create jobs and help drought our regions, the LNP would raise the Burdekin Falls Dam wall, get the Urannah and Nullinga Dam projects shovel ready and finally deliver Rockwood Weir for Central Queensland.

“Only the Liberal National Party is committed to doing what it takes to drought proof our regions.”
