Liberal National Party Shadow Energy Minister Michael Hart warned Queenslanders not to be fooled by Labor’s great power price con.
“All Labor is offering is subsidies for a few, whilst all Queenslanders continue to pay record high electricity prices,” Mr Hart said.
“Subsidies are just a sugar hit funded by increased taxes, in the end Queenslanders still pay. In regional Queensland they miss out altogether when it comes to the Alinta deal. A deal only possible because of reforms the LNP bought in that Labor delayed.
“Labor need to focus on cheaper electricity for all and end the money merry-go-round.”
