Petrol giants ripping off Queenslanders during a global pandemic is corporate greed at its worst.

Prices currently shouldn't be above $1.20 so let's call them out!

We know cost of living is a huge issue and every dollar counts so when I have a list, I'll write to the ACCC where they should come down on those petrol companies hard.

BOATING BAN: The only reasons you’re allowed on the water

BOATING BAN: The only reasons you’re allowed on the water

Queensland’s recreational boaters have been told to stay out of the water, unless fishing locally for food or for essential travel.

Labor have totally missed the mark with this. We are facing months of this social isolation but we need a measured commonsense approach.

As long as you observe social distancing you should still be able to go out on the water and have a quiet fish at this difficult time.

How much did you pay at the petrol bowser?

Motorists paying anything over $1.20 a litre for fuel right now are blatantly being ripped off by greedy companies.

I will write to the ACCC once I have a list of petrol companies gouging Queenslanders.

Thank you to all staff at Kilcoy Hospital during these trying times.

These incredible workers took a few seconds at shift change to pose for a photo, put on a smiley face - then they were back to the ward to carry on caring.

At Kilcoy Hospital and across the state, thank you and please stay happy & healthy. ❤

Cost of living is a huge issue for Queenslanders right now and every dollar counts when families are just trying to put food on their table.

I call on any petrol station charging more than $1.20 to immediately slash their prices and stop the petrol rip-off.
 
If the petrol companies don’t budge and they're found to be gouging consumers, then the ACCC should come down on them like a tonne of bricks.

Just because you can't catch up at your neighbours place 🏠 doesn't mean you can't say hi over the fence (from a distance) or give them a call. ☎️

Check in. Ask if they're OK. Offer to help.

It can be pretty lonely at home...especially if you're by yourself.

Let's check in on each other on this International Neighbour Day. 🤗

Tonight I'm calling on Labor to reverse their decision to shut down and classify licensed weapons armourers and dealers as ‘non-essential services’.

Farmers and landholders rely on this industry to keep us fed.

The LNP has written to the Premier and the Minister for Police and asked them to explain why these businesses were included as a non-essential service.  

It's imperative these businesses continue to operate to:

1️⃣ Continue to carry out servicing on firearms and firearm equipment to ensure safety standards are not jeopardised;
2️⃣ Provide a means for farmers to undertake their usual activities such as pest control;
3️⃣ Adhere to animal welfare standards in the event a firearm is required to humanely put down a sick or injured animal;
4️⃣ Allow for members of the public to surrender unregistered firearms (particularly for those found at a clean up of a property or at a deceased estate) to licensed dealers for safekeeping;
5️⃣ Provide lawful firearm owners the ability to access ammunition to control vermin as new crops continue to grow; and
6️⃣ Store firearms owned by members of the public who are required to surrender these under Domestic Violence Protection Orders.

The decision to shut down these businesses also creates the situation where unsecured firearms will be sent to depots and remain there for up to 6 months. If this does occur, there is a real risk to community safety in the event proper safekeeping of these firearms is not adhered to. 

This decision will undoubtedly impact not only the licensed armourers and dealers but the farmers who are dependent on the industry. 

The Palaszczuk Labor Government needs to explain why it has singled-out licensed armourers and dealers from other industries which also provide essential goods and services to Queenslanders.

The LNP is calling on the Palaszczuk Labor Government to overturn the decision immediately and work with the industry to put measures in place that can keep these businesses open but maintain social distancing.

In order to best safeguard Australia’s national interest and protect jobs, the Federal Morrison Government will require approvals of all proposed foreign investments into Australia.

Reducing foreign investment thresholds will ensure appropriate oversight over all proposed foreign investments during this current health crisis.

This is not an investment freeze. Australia is open for business, however investments that protect and support Australian businesses and jobs will be prioritised.
