POLICY ANNOUNCEMENTS

Building a Safe and Fair Personalised Transport Industry

After listening to passengers, drivers, owners and operators, the LNP believes the government's efforts with the personalised transport Industry should be refocused to stand up for the Industry.

An LNP Government will restore confidence to the personalised transport industry - taxis and ridesharing - by appointing an Independent Commissioner and giving the industry a real seat at the table.

The LNP will listen, plan and act for passengers and the Industry, to fix Labor's mess.

No Body, No Parole

The LNP will deny parole to convicted killers if they refuse to assist in revealing the location of their victims - ensuring that the scales of justice are balanced in favour of the victim, rather than the offender.

Taking Ice Off Our Streets

Ice use in regional and remote communities has increased alarmingly in recent years. Queensland needs a targeted, comprehensive plan, which complements the National Ice Action Plan, to tackle this issue and take ice off our streets.
 
The LNP has a solid record of tackling drug use in Queensland. An LNP Government will implement a comprehensive, five-point action plan to take ice off our streets through crime prevention, drug addiction services and strong enforcement.

Empowering Survivors of Child Sex Abuse

The LNP wants Queensland to be the safest place to raise a family. In reaching that goal, helping survivors of child sex abuse is an important part of learning the lessons of past societal injustices.
 
An LNP Government will remove the limitation of claims, as recommended by the Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Sex Abuse, to allow survivors the opportunity to seek justice in their own time.

Great Barrier Reef Pledge

An LNP Government will support the Citizens of the Great Barrier Reef initiative to encourage informed social action to promote and protect the Great Barrier Reef.

Cash for Containers

An LNP Government will implement a Container Deposit Scheme to clean up Queensland and better protect our environment.
