Parliament Wrap 25.07.2019


G’day great to be back. Parliament has certainly
resumed in earnest. One of my first speeches was something close to my heart – talking
about literacy and numeracy, and sadly the declining rates of both of those under this
Coalition government. I also talked about the importance of free trade for small businesses –
and obviously spoke about a lot of local issues – tabled a book from the Sherwood-Indooroopilly
RSL – that’s been contributed to by local school children talking about the Great War.
I also spoke about crime in the Sunnybank area and the great work the Queensland police
service have been doing. Called on the Liberal and National councillors to get some CCTV
into the Sunnybank area – I hope they’ll listen to that. I also spoke about the closing, sadly,
of the Annerley Bookshop. Very interesting couple of Question Times. Pretty well, the
four have been broken up into two different things. One either talking about a pretty
dodgey minister called Angus Taylor, or the incredible delay when it comes to rolling
out infrastructure under the Coalition government. Have a look at my Facebook page to see the
question I asked the Deputy Prime Minister about when the Coopers Plains rail crossing
will actually be changed. The LNP made a commitment to it in the federal election – but as best
as I can figure out from Michael McCormack’s answer it might be 2029 before the Liberals
and Nationals Party actually get around to repairing it. Alright we’re back here next
week – see you then!
