Axed SES cadets wrong
THE decision by the Newman Government to scrap the SES cadet program highlights the LNP’s twisted priorities.
The scheme cost $1.2 million and benefited young people in dozens of centres around our state.
The LNP’s first State Budget cut funds for SES cadets but also contained almost three times that amount - $3.5 million - just to start planning for the Premier’s new but unnecessary executive building in the Brisbane CBD.
I think that puts into perspective the Newman Government’s priorities.
As usual LNP MPs have again failed to explain why their Government is more interested in a flash new office in Brisbane and is failing to support young people in regional areas and the communities that ultimately benefit from the cadet scheme in times of need.
