Please find below a statement from LNP Shadow Minister for Housing and Public Works Michael Hart on the Palaszczuk Labor Government's belated decision to fund a public court examination into the collapse of JM Kelly Builders:
"Annastacia Palaszczuk was warned in 2016 about JM Kelly but she failed to act.
"The Palaszczuk Labor Government transferred construction contracts to help JM Kelly when it should have been protecting subbies.
"Annastacia Palaszczuk failed to act and she failed to protect sub-contractors from massive financial losses.
"This probe needs to look at what Annastacia Palaszczuk and her Ministers knew about this scandal and when."
