LNP Pledge – No New Taxes and No Royalty increases

Published:

LNP Leader Deb Frecklington today announced a government she leads will not raise royalties for our resources industry and called on Annastacia Palaszczuk and Jackie Trad to match her pledge in this year's state budget.

"Queenslanders want secure jobs, they want cost of living relief and we need a government that doesn't constantly keep digging into Queenslanders pockets and businesses," Ms Frecklington said.

"I have already pledge no new taxes and today I go a step further and announce an LNP Government will not raise mining royalties in our first term in office.

"Raising mining royalties is effectively another tax on the regions.

"Increasing royalties is a way to silently kill coal mines, costing thousands of jobs.

"Increasing royalties would jeopardise Queensland coal exports and jobs.

"Given China Stone's announcement this morning, more than ever the resources industry needs certainty. Only the LNP has a plan to open up the Galilee Basin.

"We all know Labor's anti-jobs, anti-regions and high-taxing agenda is ripping Queensland apart. Only the LNP has a plan to stop it.

 "If Annastacia Palaszczuk really cared about the resources industry, she would support my call and rule out any royalty increases in this year's state budget."

LNP Shadow Minister for Mines Dale Last said it is time for Annastacia Palaszczuk and Jackie Trad to stand up and put Queenslanders first.

"Labor is bitterly divided - and it's dividing the state in the process and destroying jobs," Mr Last said.

"$2.2 billion has been ripped from the economy thanks to Labor's five new taxes and we fear Annastacia Palaszczuk's addiction to tax, which is costing small businesses and destroying jobs will soon hit the mining sector.

"It is time Annastacia Palaszczuk started listening to the regions."
