Media Statement from LNP Leader Deb Frecklington: New Acland mine

Tuesday 14 July, 2020

‘Today I asked the Premier to support New Acland stage 3 to save and secure Queensland jobs and she refused to do it.

‘Annastacia Palaszczuk is putting her anti-resources agenda before the jobs of resource workers and their families.

‘The Premier is the only person standing in the way of this project and she is responsible for every job that is lost by blocking it.

‘Labor has no plan for Queensland and no sympathy for New Acland workers whose jobs are at risk.

‘This project would be approved by an LNP Government because we need a stronger economy and secure jobs to drag Queensland out of recession.

‘The LNP’s economic plan will unleash Queensland industry, supercharge the regions and secure our children’s future.’
