Labor inaction leaves plumbers in limbo

LNP Shadow Minister for Housing and Public Works Michael Hart has criticised the Labor Government for taking more than three years to resolve licensing issues in the plumbing industry.

"We had legislation in the pipeline before we left office and it has taken Labor three and a half years to hand in the LNP's homework," Mr Hart said.

"We got the ball rolling so that plumbers would no longer be required to hold both a contractor licence and an occupational licence, which would reduce red tape and streamline the process.

"Labor have dragged their heels on this issue since they were elected and failed to progress the necessary legislation until now.

"The Minister needs to explain just why it has taken Labor so long to address this matter.

"The LNP will welcome the elimination of the second fee for contractors when it finally occurs, but plumbers have been in limbo for more than three years because Labor has been slow to act."
