Queensland Party Leader, Aidan McLindon, has put the ALP and LNP on notice in the Mackay Regional Sitting of State Parliament today that asset sales will continue to be an issue in the lead up to the next state election.

“Premier Bligh responded to my question in Parliament today regarding new asset sales stating that her government has ended its program of sell-offs. I thank the Premier for her response but will leave it up to ordinary Queenslanders to determine the credibility of her answer.”

“It’s concerning the LNP are already flagging new sell-offs given 85% of Queenslanders were against the last fire sale.”

“It’s now time for Mr Newman to outline the LNP’s position. His continued silence after alluding to the possibility of further privatisation of state assets can only be seen as the LNP leaving the door open to another round of sales.”

“It’s no secret that one of the LNP’s key policy platforms is the privatisation of the states assets which was one of the reasons I left the LNP to form The Queensland Party.”

Today, in her response to my question, the Premier stated:

“We undertook a very rigorous examination and everyone knows the outcome of it. What I do know is that the new leader of the LNP has identified that there is room for more sell-offs including, and I use his words, ‘the remaining coal terminals and outsourcing the electricity power grid’. I can guarantee that Labor has done its program. We have made that public and we have achieved it. I cannot guarantee for the member for Beaudesert what will happen with this mob.”
