LNP Leader Deb Frecklington has reiterated her plan to create jobs, boost investment and unlock the full potential of the Galilee Basin, during a trip to Central Queensland on Tuesday.  

Ms Frecklington said Annastacia Palaszczuk has turned her back on the region thanks to her anti-resources, anti-regions and anti-jobs agenda.

“The resources industry has been held to ransom by the Palaszczuk Labor Government,” Ms Frecklington said.

“The LNP’s ‘Boost the Basin’ plan will create thousands of new jobs across Central and North Queensland.

“We will also deliver a 10-year freeze on mining royalties and overhaul Labor’s appalling approval process.

“Adani didn’t go through approvals for the Carmichael coalmine project, it was an obstacle course.

“$50 billion worth of Galilee Basin projects, which will create 15,000 new jobs have stalled because of Labor.

“Central Queensland plays a crucial role for the entire state.

“I guarantee that all Queenslanders will reap the benefits of the Galilee Basin through new roads, hospitals and schools.

“Annastacia Palaszczuk has no plan for Queensland other than tax, tax and more tax.

“When Labor run out of money, they come after yours.

“Queenslanders have been slugged with nine new or higher taxes under the Palaszczuk Labor Government.

“I’ve consistently said an LNP Government I lead will not introduce any new taxes.

“Annastacia Palaszczuk refuses to do the same, which is why you can’t afford Labor or trust them to create new jobs.”
