LNP demands action on chroming crisis

Published:

Labor must urgently address the chroming crisis that's damaging the lives of hundreds of Queensland kids, the LNP said today.

Speaking after a shocking report on the extent of the chroming epidemic, Shadow Health Minister Ros Bates said the LNP began calling for a statewide chroming strategy last year.

"The Palaszczuk Labor Government is failing to protect vulnerable kids," Ms Bates said.

"The chroming crisis is out of control in parts of our state, but Labor's response has been practically non-existent.

"Our teachers, police and health professionals are doing all they can, but they need far more support to beat this deadly problem.

"The LNP has already offered to work hand-in-hand with the State Government to develop a chroming strategy and I'm calling on Health Minister to work with us.

"Chroming leads to crime, serious health problems and in the worst cases it can even kill.

"Queensland can't ignore this problem. Our kids need help and we have to give it to them."
