State Development Minister Cameron Dick can try and spin it is much as he likes, the fact is the Market-Led Proposals (MLP) program has been a dismal failure under Labor, the LNP said today.

LNP Shadow Minister for State Development Andrew Powell said in almost four years, only two proposals have made it through the approval process and one of those was a new toll road.

"Cameron Dick can try and put another name on the program, but it will have the same result because business confidence in Labor has completely flatlined," Mr Powell said.

"What else would you expect from a government that is owned by the trade union bosses lock, stock and barrel and addicted to additional red tape and regulation.

"The LNP worked with the private sector to deliver the infrastructure Queenslanders need.

"While in government we delivered major projects in partnership with the private sector, including the:

• $4.4 billion New Generation Rollingstock Project
• $1.6 billion Toowoomba Second Range Crossing
• $1.4 billion Queensland Schools Project
• $1.8 billion Sunshine Coast University Hospital, and
• $457 million Government Wireless Network.

"We also delivered the Queens Wharf project and kick started the Herston Quarter redevelopment.

"We knew that good ideas were not held by governments and were committed to working with the private sector to attract more business investment.

"We've seen a lot of fluffy picture opportunities with Annastacia Palaszczuk and her Ministers smiling for the cameras, but very little action at all.

"Just like the Southbank aquarium that was announced several times before the proponents withdrew their application**

"This is yet another reason why Queensland has an infrastructure crisis, as proclaimed by Treasurer Jackie Trad.

"It's no wonder Queensland also has the highest unemployment rate in the nation."
