LNP Deputy Leader and Shadow Treasurer Tim Mander has slammed the Palaszczuk Labor Government for guillotining debate on three Bills crucial to Queensland's finances.
"Clearly Labor wanted to stop the scrutiny of its $83 billion debt bomb and five new taxes," Mr Mander said.
"It's a disgrace that Labor Treasurer Jackie Trad jumped early and guillotined debate.
"Labor had already set a tight time limit around these three Bills, which was opposed by the LNP, and could not even abide by their own condition on debate.
"Queensland has the highest unemployment rate in the country, plummeting business confidence, and flatlining domestic growth.
"We had six speakers who wanted to debate what Labor's debt bomb means for their communities and there was 45 minutes still left on the clock for debate.
"After already combining three significant financial Bills to rush them through, Jackie Trad wouldn't even let the debate play out.
"Labor has no economic credentials and no plan for Queensland's economy.
"Only the LNP has a plan to strengthen our economy through cutting red-tape, investing in infrastructure and ruling out any new taxes."
