Media Statement: Tragic death of Ballina baby refused entry to Queensland

28th August 2020

Statement from LNP Leader Deb Frecklington:

‘This is absolutely tragic.

‘My heart bleeds for the family and everything they have been put through.

‘When it comes to medical emergencies and border exemptions, the Premier needs to be more compassionate and consistent – not have one rule for the rich and another rule for everyday Australians.

‘At the end of the day we are all Australians and medical emergencies should be automatically exempt.’
