Statement from LNP Leader Deb Frecklington

Thursday, 16th July 2020

“Annastacia Palaszczuk inviting a regional Queensland motel to communicate with her Labor Government in German is insulting to every Queensland business trying to survive a global pandemic.

“Labor should be backing Queensland not Deutschland. This is another betrayal by Labor of Queensland businesses and jobs.

“Adding insult to injury, the Palaszczuk Labor Government is attempting to rip-off this regional motel in the middle of a global pandemic.

“The LNP has received correspondence from an upset accommodation provider who has been told to cut their rates to government by 10% or be cut-off from work.

“In the middle of a pandemic, the Labor Government’s German based booking service is strong arming mum and dad businesses and it just isn’t good enough.

“With over 200,000 Queenslanders desperate to get a job and Queensland in the grip of recession, the Palaszczuk Government is jeopardising tourism jobs.

“Only the LNP has a plan to stimulate the economy and create a decade of secure jobs.”
