The Palaszczuk Labor Government's incompetence has left elderly Queenslanders in limbo after a loophole was exposed in aged care legislation.
LNP Shadow Housing Minister Michael Hart said the loophole meant retirement care providers did not have to comply with new rules regarding the payment of exit entitlements within 18 months if the units were freehold.
"These were Labor's laws and their incompetence meant thousands of elderly Queenslanders would pay the price," Mr Hart said.
"These exit entitlements are often used by the elderly or their families to cover the next stage of care in their lives, which is crucial.
"This mess is a direct result of the Palaszczuk Labor Government's incompetence.
"Instead of blaming retirement care providers for not alerting them to the issue, the loophole should not have been in the legislation in the first place.
"Blaming industry operators for the problem shows how out of touch the Palaszczuk Labor Government is.
"Labor failed spectacularly in their due diligence and introduced dodgy legislation.
"Annastacia Palaszczuk got this legislation wrong and it needs to be fixed to ensure no elderly Queenslanders are worse off.
"Labor has a long history of getting legislation wrong and they still haven't closed a loophole in the Blue Card system, which allows people to start working with children without a Blue Card."
Mr Hart said the LNP supported action to eliminate financial abuse of elderly Queenslanders.
