LNP claims major win for Queenslanders on stamp duty 

10th June 2024

Labor adopts yet another LNP policy

The LNP has today delivered another major win for Queenslanders, with an astonishing backflip by the Miles Labor Government to adopt the LNP’s policy to raise the stamp duty threshold.

In January the LNP announced it would raise the stamp duty threshold to help more young Queenslanders get into their first home.

At the time, Steven Miles rubbished the LNP’s policy, claiming it was a “thought bubble” that would increase house prices.

But today, just months from an election, Steven Miles has shockingly backflipped and adopted the LNP’s policy as his own.

Queenslanders know they can’t trust Labor on the big issues like housing, after they failed to act for a decade.

What’s changed in a matter of months except an ever-closer election?

This is more evidence Labor can’t be trusted on the big issues facing Queenslanders.

Labor will say and do anything to cling to power, including adopting LNP policies they rubbished just months ago.

The remarkable backflip follows a list of other LNP policies Labor has adopted including breach of bail, reduced learner licence fees and freezing car rego.

Only the LNP has the Right Priorities for Queensland’s future, including securing our housing foundations.
