Statement from LNP Leader Deb Frecklington: Labor’s backflip on shark drumlines

4th February 2020

“On September 23rd last year I announced a plan to put smart drumlines into the marine park area after Labor sold out community safety by pulling shark drumlines out of Queensland waters without any plan B.

“For 134 days, Annastacia Palaszczuk and her ministers attacked the LNP’s plan, playing politics with swimmer safety and putting tourism jobs at risk.

“Today’s massive backflip by Labor is welcomed.

“Queensland’s tourism industry needs to be safeguarded and smart drumlines are a way to protect humans and protect local tourism jobs.”
