- Moggill set to miss out in Labor’s budget
- Project Services cut under Labor
- No Infrastructure project in budget
- Moggill jobs to suffer
The Palaszczuk Labor Government has abandoned the Moggill Electorate delivering a budget that cuts infrastructure spending and key services.
State Member for Moggill, Dr Christian Rowan MP, said the incompetent Palaszczuk Labor Government had failed the people of the Moggill Electorate by delivering another budget of broken promises propped up by raids on public servants superannuation and increased fees, charges and taxes.
“Premier Palaszczuk and her clueless Treasurer have handed down a budget that fails to deliver the jobs and services that the residents of Moggill need now and for the future.”
“Labor promised a budget that would deliver jobs in Brisbane’s western suburbs but unemployment will rise.”
“They promised a budget that would pay down debt but instead debt will increase.”
“They promised record infrastructure but have slashed infrastructure funding to a record low.”
“This means the Moggill electorate will miss out on vital infrastructure and services, all because Labor can’t manage the books.”
“No funds for road upgrades amid the ever increasing road chaos in peak hours and no funds for an additional high school.”
“This is a budget of raids, rip-offs and write downs which offers nothing for the western suburbs of Brisbane.”
Opposition Leader Tim Nicholls said today’s Palaszczuk-Pitt Budget confirmed Labor was incapable of delivering a sustainable long-term economic plan or creating jobs for Queensland.
“Budgets should boost business confidence, infrastructure investment and jobs but the Palaszczuk Labor Government has failed on all counts,” Mr Nicholls said.
“Premier Palaszczuk and her clueless Treasurer only know how to deliver short-term sugar hits that will fail to deliver the jobs and services that Queenslanders need now and for the future. What happens when they run out of hollow logs to raid?”
