KATTER’S Australian Party MP Bob Katter delivered an electric speech in Federal Parliament on Monday lamenting the proposed collapse of a 200,000-job industry through the latest Safeguard Mechanism Bill amendments.
Katter’s Australian Party is flagging a proposal incentivising Year 12 students to take up the forgotten “wet” trades of bricklaying, concreting and scaffolding in a transitional schedule strategically-timed with the winter weather.
Queensland’s Blue Card system has been labelled a “modern-day injustice” for First Australian people living in remote communities, but the Palaszczuk Labor Government has no intention of taking on the task of its reform, Katter’s Australian Party Leader and Traeger MP Robbie Katter has said.
KENNEDY MP Bob Katter has welcomed significant announcements listed in the Federal Budget for North Queensland including $225m for exploration grants in the resource-rich “North West Minerals Province” near Mount Isa, significant investments in protecting Australia against foot and mouth disease, grants for invasive weeds and feral pigs, and funding to improve telecommunications in the electorate’s many black spots.
KENNEDY MP Bob Katter says the Prime Minister owes North Queensland its share of job-creating projects after news reports claimed Hells Gate was scrapped from the budget, and subsequently, $6bn was announced for electricity projects in Victoria.
