Have your say on proposed laws
SUBMISSIONS for the Liberal National Party’s tough new laws designed to deter and punish extremists from illegally trespassing and terrorising hard-working Queenslanders operating farms, butchers, factories and transport infrastructure such as trains close noon this Monday, July 15.
Liberal National Party Shadow Minister for Natural Resources and Mines Dale Last called on all businesses owners to make sure they took the opportunity to support tougher trespass laws in Queensland.
“The LNP are serious when it comes to protecting hard-working farming families from radical animal extremists,” said Mr Last.
“It is simply unacceptable that extremists are invading farms where families live and work without any real
“That's why the LNP introduced three tough new trespass laws into Parliament to ensure Queensland has the most comprehensive trespass laws in the country.
“Just like industry and the community has asked, these laws are designed to protect all Queenslanders and their businesses, not just farmers.
“Our laws not only deal with those that do the terrorising, they go after the organisations and ringleaders - an important component to stamping this activity out that has failed to be addressed.
“The LNP want to make it very clear - it's okay to protest and have different opinions, but if you choose to terrorise our farmers or choose to block a coal rail line then you can expect to be whacked with the consequences - it's that simple.”
