Liberal National Party Leader Deb Frecklington said she welcomed the Coalition Government’s decision to build the phase two of the Land 400 project in Queensland.
“When it comes to creating jobs in Queensland, it is only the LNP that delivers,” Ms Frecklington said.
“When I meet with my federal counterparts recently I pushed dam hard for this major project to be built here.
“It was my main priority when I met with Minister for Defence Industry Christopher Pyne recently.
“I know our Team Queensland LNP Federal MPs have been fighting tooth and nail for this as well.
“If state Labor spent less time Canberra bashing and more time consulting we would get results like this more often.
“This multi-billion dollar project will create thousands of ongoing jobs across all of Queensland.
“We have the country’s worst unemployment so getting a project like this is going to help a lot.”
