29th July 2019

“Annastacia Palaszczuk’s integrity crisis has deepened even further today with this latest revelation about Jackie Trad.

“It’s been revealed that Jackie Trad failed to declare a government-owned energy company CS Energy, which she is responsible for, employs a law firm which she and her husband have a major financial stake.

“Annastacia Palaszczuk should order Jackie Trad to publicly release the Integrity Commissioner’s advice she received in relation to her clear conflict over CS Energy.

“Jackie Trad directly benefits from the work her husband’s law firm performs for a government business she is in charge of.

“For well over a week, Annastacia Palaszczuk has failed the leadership test and refused to sack Jackie Trad.

“Enough is enough – Jackie Trad’s got to go.

“It is unacceptable that Palaszczuk Labor Government Ministers are using their positions to line their own pockets.

“Jackie Trad continues to abuse her position and thinks she is above the rules.

“Jackie Trad has no respect for the integrity framework or for Queenslanders.

“Jackie Trad has lost all integrity.”
