The scourge of ICE

The scourge of ICE is wreaking havoc on families across Queensland.

This is a drug that doesn't discriminate, it decimates. Families are torn apart, lives are ruined and communities have to deal with increased crime.

Annastacia Palaszczuk promised one new rehab facility at the last state election – which has been significantly delayed.

This was the only ICE project mentioned in the recent Queensland Health budget and now Labor won't even reveal the site they have finally chosen.

It's disappointing that taking action to deal with ICE isn't a priority for the Palaszczuk Labor Government.

In contrast, the LNP has a comprehensive ICE plan that provides more treatment, more education and awareness and a co-ordinated crackdown on the supply chain with targeted law and border enforcement.

As part of our plan, the LNP will build four new regional drug and alcohol rehabilitation centres in Townsville, Wide Bay, Toowoomba and the Sunshine Coast if elected in 2020.

Tackling the ICE scourge is a serious issue, that needs a comprehensive plan of action – not more delays and more excuses like we see from Labor.

This is a priority policy for Deb Frecklington and the LNP team and that will help bridge the divide between our regions and the south-east.
