                                        TIRED GOVERNMENT ASLEEP ON THE JOB

               Member for Kawana Jarrod Bleijie has blasted the Bligh Labor Government’s
               move to guillotine debate on the South East Queensland Regional Plan
               before all MPs had a chance to speak

               Mr Bleijie said he had wanted to raise issues regarding development and
               infrastructure in the Kawana electorate and was disappointed at not getting
               the opportunity to make a contribution.

               “As parliamentary representatives it is our job to raise concerns on behalf of
               our constituents,” Mr Bleijie said.

               “The Bligh Labor Government obviously wanted to pass the motion on the
               South East Queensland Regional Plan but could not even stay late to allow
               for robust parliamentary debate.

               “Their bedtime was more important than the great population growth debate.

               “At least 10 MPs were cut off and the constituents in those electorates should
               be disgusted that their views were disregarded by a Labor Government who
               is as arrogant as it is tired.

               “They do not want to hear about issues with the Palmview development and
               the Sunshine Coast University Hospital delay.

               “I have been contacted by many of my constituents about these issues and I
               wanted the opportunity to speak in Parliament on their behalf.

               “It concerns me deeply that the voices of my constituents have been silenced
               and that is something I thought we would never see in this country.

               “This is censorship at the very least and the Bligh Labor Government should
               be admonished for circumventing the parliamentary process.”
