Labor has no plan for economic recovery

Thursday, July 9, 2020

Queensland is the only state to cancel its Budget, which means the Palaszczuk Labor Government has no plan for the state’s economic recovery. 

No Budget means Labor is flying blind through the biggest economic crisis in almost a century.

Let’s remember Queensland had the highest unemployment rate, the highest number of bankruptcies and the lowest business confidence before coronavirus – because Labor can’t manage the economy.

The Labor Treasurer has refused to tell Queenslanders the current or projected debt level*.

Labor should be delivering a full state Budget so Queenslanders have transparency about how their taxes are being spent.

The Palaszczuk Government has broken its fiscal principle about public service growth every year with the number of public servants rising more than population growth. 

On top of that, Labor has failed to release public service statistics since June 2019. 

Labor has smashed the Queensland economy with nine new or increased taxes, ripping almost $4 billion out of the economy.

You can’t tax your way to growth and the LNP is calling on Annastacia Palaszczuk to rule out introducing any new taxes.  

The LNP has committed to no new taxes, which will give businesses certainty to grow, invest and employ Queenslanders.
