Labor fails to meet own KPIs for racing

Published:

Queensland’s racing industry has been dealt another blow after it was revealed the Palaszczuk Labor Government would not meet its own racing Key Performance Indicators by 2020.

LNP Shadow Minister for Racing John-Paul Langbroek, said the racing industry was struggling under a Palaszczuk Labor Government that taxes the industry but fails to deliver vital infrastructure projects. 

“Labor’s own 2017/18 Racing Queensland Annual Report promised vital infrastructure projects such as night racing on the Gold Coast and new or replacement greyhound and harness racing tracks by 2020,” he said. 

“With less than 5 months left of 2019, it was made clear at Estimates that these much-needed projects would not be delivered anytime soon, let alone on time.

“To add insult to injury, under Labor there was a $30.2 million dollar underspend in racing infrastructure in the 2018/19 financial year, despite the fact that there is a long list of projects that the racing industry has been crying out for some time.

“This is a tell-tale sign that Labor has failed when it comes to racing.”

Mr Langbroek said Labor’s failure to meet its own KPIs is a kick in the guts for an industry that is already suffering under a Government that is treating it like a cash cow. 

“Labor does not support racing,” he said. 

“While Labor has been at the helm, we have seen unprecedented strikes, a major owner and breeder withdraw from 

Queensland Racing, and major issues with integrity and safety have arisen.

“The Estimates hearing proved what we all know to be true - Labor could not care less about racing.”
