The Palaszczuk Government’s plan for water? Pray for Rain!!!
The State Government hasn’t built a dam in a generation, they are light on water policy and heavy on politics.
In less than 20 years Queensland will need a dam the size of Wivenhoe to keep up with population growth.
When asked about the water plan today, the Minister said their plan is to pray for rain.
This State Government cannot be trusted when it comes to water security.

This week is National Stroke Week and I took the opportunity to call into the South Burnett Stroke Support Group Meeting.
A passionate group of people supporting and promoting stroke awareness.
Did you know there is one stroke every 19 minutes in Australia, but the good news is that 80% of strokes are preventable.
The most common signs of stroke are outlined as part of the F.A.S.T message –
• drooping Face
• inability to lift your Arms
• slurred Speech.
• Time is then critical – call triple zero (000) immediately
Following on from my health crisis meeting yesterday I took Shadow Minister for Health and Ambulance Services Ros Bates MP with me for a tour of the Kingaroy Hospital.
Thank you to the Hospital staff and Darling Downs Health representatives for your time.
There is no doubt the Hospital is a beautiful new building that our community needed and deserved. However, I will continue to advocate for more staff and improved services.
The South Burnett deserves this.
Thank you to the 200 people who attended this morning's health crisis meeting with David Crisafulli MP and Ros Bates MP.
Thank you also to the many people who could not attend but have emailed and phoned to tell me their story.
We are committed to supporting this community and backing their fight for better healthcare services.
Australia has lost an icon.

So proud of you girls!
Sadly, the State Government is losing control of the health system. We've been inundated with messages from honest Queenslanders. Their stories are harrowing. Patients deserve better healthcare and our hard-working doctors, nurses and ambos are crying out for more support. Join Opposition Leader...
It is not too late to book your free ticket to my Health Crisis Meeting in Kingaroy tomorrow!
