RE­TURN TO ROY­AL­TIES: LNP

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - OPINION -

La­bor gov­ern­ments have long de­nied Re­gional Queens­land the in­fra­struc­ture in­vest­ment it des­per­ately needs, and de­serves, to keep up with growth.

The LNP knows that peo­ple liv­ing in Re­gional Queens­land are hurt­ing, we know they are find­ing it tough to get a job and we know they are sick to death of lip ser­vice from An­nasta­cia Palaszczuk.

That is why the LNP will re­in­state our suc­cess­ful Roy­al­ties for the Re­gions pro­gram should we be suc­cess­ful at the state elec­tion.

We will in­vest $495 mil­lion over four years to en­sure re­gional towns and cities that have been starved of in­fra­struc­ture un­der An­nasta­cia Palaszczuk get their fair share.

The LNP be­lieves roy­al­ties col­lected by the State Gov­ern­ment should be in­vested back into the re­gional com­mu­ni­ties that gen­er­ated them.

Re­gional Queens­lan­ders will al­ways have a friend in the LNP – a unique bond that has been built on the back of trust, re­spect and loy­alty.

Deb Freck­ling­ton, LNP Deputy Leader
