Queenslanders shouldn’t be slugged with secret tax
Liberal National Party Leader Deb Frecklington has said Queenslanders forced to install compulsory smart meters shouldn’t have to pay more for electricity.
“A Government I lead wouldn’t charge Queenslanders more for a compulsory Government program,” Ms Frecklington said.
“Household’s shouldn’t be $100 a year worse off for a compulsory smart meter program.
“Smart meters are supposed to help consumers, not slug them with a secret tax on their power bill.
“The LNP won’t slug Queenslanders in secret, smart meters should be optional or delivered at the same price as existing meters.”
