Submissions for the Liberal National Party's tough new laws designed to deter and punish extremists from illegally trespassing and terrorising hard-working Queenslanders operating farms, butchers, factories and transport infrastructure such as trains close midday this Monday 15 July 2019.

Liberal National Party Shadow Minister for Natural Resources and Mines Dale Last called on all businesses owners to make sure they took the opportunity to support tougher trespass laws in Queensland.

"The LNP are serious when it comes to protecting hard-working farming families from radical animal extremists," said Mr Last.

"Labor's 'soft on crime' approach to protecting our farming families and other lawful businesses from these extremists has failed to address the rising tide of criminal activity.

"It is simply unacceptable that extremists are invading farms where families live and work without any real consequence.

"That's why the LNP introduced three tough new trespass laws into Parliament to ensure Queensland has the most comprehensive trespass laws in the country.

"Just like industry and the community has asked, these laws are designed to protect all Queenslanders and their businesses, not just farmers.

"Our laws not only deal with those that do the terrorising, they go after the organisations and ringleaders - an important component to stamping this activity out that has failed to be addressed.

"The LNP want to make it very clear - it's ok to protest and have different opinions, but if you choose to trespass and terrorise our hard-working farmers or choose to block a coal rail line then you can expect to be whacked with the consequences - it's that simple.

"Only the LNP is serious about protecting Queenslanders from unlawful extremists who do not represent the values of our great state.

"It's time for the Palaszczuk Labor Government to get on-board and support our tough new trespass laws."

LNP's trespass laws:

  *   Aggravated trespass with a maximum penalty of $13,055 fine or 3 years imprisonment;

  *   Serious Criminal Trespass with a maximum penalty $391,650 or 10 years imprisonment; and

  *   Organised Trespass which has a maximum penalty of $391,650 or 10 years imprisonment.
