Deb launches Maleny Dairies petition

LNP Leader Deb Frecklington has launched a petition today calling on Annastacia Palaszczuk to reverse her government’s disgraceful decision to snub Maleny Dairies for the Metro North Hospitals supply contract.
Ms Frecklington said Labor’s decision to award the contract to French and Chinese companies is a slap in the face to Queenslanders.
“Maleny Dairies is proudly Queensland, but they’ve been utterly betrayed by Labor,” Ms Frecklington said
“The Palaszczuk Labor Government is anti-Queensland.
“Annastacia Palaszczuk’s ‘Buy Queensland Policy’ is nothing but a three-word slogan based on false hope.
“There has been an overwhelming response by Queenslanders who think Maleny Dairies has been dudded by the Palaszczuk Labor Government.
“The LNP is committed to Queensland jobs and we will fight for more Queensland jobs.
“This petition will send a strong message to Annastacia Palaszczuk that Queenslanders won’t tolerate being pushed aside for overseas companies.”
LNP Member for Glass House Andrew Powell said every excuse the Palaszczuk Government has given doesn’t stack up.
“Maleny Dairies had ongoing discussions with Palaszczuk Government officials, but none of the issues they are now citing were raised,” Mr Powell said.

“The Palaszczuk Government used Maleny Dairies to promote their Buy Queensland policy but then haven’t given them a go.
“We need 10,000 signatures by February 3 to get this debated by the Parliament.
“It is important that this gets debated on the floor because Queenslanders are outraged by the decision.”
