LNP backs rally to build Rookwood to full capacity

3rd October 2019

LNP Deputy Leader Tim Mander joined more than 200 farmers, landowners and graziers in Rockhampton today to fight the Palaszczuk Labor Government’s secret plan to cut the size of Rookwood Weir.

“Annastacia Palaszczuk is anti-regions, anti-jobs and anti-dams,” Mr Mander said.

“Watering down the weir will mean less jobs for Central Queensland.

“Labor haven’t reduced the length of Cross River Rail because of concrete costs and they shouldn’t only be building part of the weir.

“Instead of spending $250m on public servant bonuses, that money could have been invested in delivering water security.

“Annastacia Palaszczuk isn’t delivering for Central Queenslanders and her priorities are all wrong.

“Only the LNP is committed to water security and building the dams Queensland needs as part of a 30-year water strategy.”
