Annastacia Palaszczuk must finally give the Carmichael coal project a fair go after it received its final approval from the Federal Government, LNP Leader Deb Frecklington said today.
"It's decision time for Annastacia Palaszczuk," Ms Frecklington said.
"My position has always been clear. This project should get a fair go from the State Government because North Queensland is crying out for jobs.
"In Townsville alone there are 9,300 people desperately looking for work.
"Labor has previously stated it will not review the groundwater management plan once approved by the Federal Government. Labor must honour this commitment.
"Annastacia Palaszczuk cannot change the goalposts on this project again.
"That would be a devastating blow to the economies of Central and North Queensland."
LNP Shadow Resources Minister Dale Last said it was time to take the politics out of the project.
"This project has been eight years in the making and it's time to take the shackles off," Mr Last said.
"Labor MPs in Brisbane and Canberra don't give a damn about regional Queensland and they shouldn't be allowed to destroy the jobs this project will bring.
"Labor must now approve the Black-Throated Finch Management Plan and unlock these jobs.
"The only person standing in the way of more jobs for Queenslanders is Annastacia Palaszczuk."
