Queenslanders are being given a chance to can have their say on the effectiveness of land management policy and the frequency of bushfires.
The opening of the Federal Government inquiry has been welcomed, after the Palaszczuk Labor Government shut down attempts by the LNP to establish a State Parliamentary Inquiry on behalf of those who have suffered the impacts of two intense fire seasons.
I've visited communities that have been in the crosshair of these ferocious blazes and so many locals have questions and Labor isn't answering them.
Stories of mismanaged state-controlled land and issues with getting approvals for hazard reduction burns are frequently raised.
Queenslanders deserve to know why Annastacia Palaszczuk has overseen an 83 per cent reduction in overall fire prevention activities.
Queenslanders deserve to know why this Labor Government has slashed funding for the Rural Fire Service by $13 million.
Our firies do an incredible job protecting the public and property, but they're being let down by a Labor government that is failing to ensure they're being backed up by suitable fire preparedness and land management practices.
It is outrageous that it takes the Federal Coalition to undertake an inquiry into an area of responsibility that the State Labor Government should be managing.
The LNP encourage all Queenslanders to make a submission to the Federal inquiry into the recent bushfires.
