Buy local policy
LABOR’S Curtis Pitt has a hide to criticise the LNP’s Buy Local policy.
Labor’s policy puts thousands of Queensland jobs at risk by jeopardising our $68 billion trade industry.
Last year Queensland lost 30,000 jobs – Queensland’s worst year on record.
Contrast that with the LNP’s Buy Local plan, based on a Price Match Guarantee for small and medium sized businesses.
If a local business that’s headquartered in Queensland and has a workforce in the project area matches the lowest bid…they’ll get the job.
Our Buy Local policy will not only prioritise local jobs but also give hard working Queensland taxpayers best bang for buck.
The LNP’s Buy Local will cover 99% of small to medium enterprises across Queensland.
The LNP is putting Queensland jobs, businesses and taxpayers first.
We want to see more local jobs by giving local businesses a hand up, not a hand out.
The LNP won’t stand by and watch Queensland jobs be put at risk by this do-nothing Palaszczuk Labor government.
Only the LNP has a true Buy Local plan to create jobs for Queenslanders. removing the genuine reasons criteria for certain licence re-applications for Category H concealable handguns.
Tim Nicholls now has to come clean.
Is he weakening our gun laws as part of a preference deal he has done with One Nation?
Insultingly, the LNP has also implied in its policy that the QPS Weapons Licensing Branch has not been complying with the law.
Such allegations are offensive to our hard working police officers and the LNP should immediately withdraw these outrageous claims.
What concerns me is that the LNP is refusing to commit to the NFA.
John Howard’s brave adoption of the NFA following the Port Arthur massacre 20 years ago was the right thing to do – our nation is safer – Queensland is safer.
In the 18 years between 1979 and 1996, there were 13 fatal mass shooting incidents in Australia.
These incidents resulted in a total of 104 deaths, with at least another 52 people injured.
There have been no fatal mass shooting incidents in Australia since the introduction of the National Firearms Agreement and the initial gun buyback in 1996 and 1997.
The LNP must commit to the NFA or admit it is betraying John Howard’s legacy for cheap One Nation votes. CHIARA Spiccia went to her very first gymnastics Junior State Championships in Brisbane, competing at Level 4 in the under-11s.
