The State Government has come under attack on a variety of issues in Question Time.

At the top of the agenda were mental health and land sales.

The Police Minister also had a stern warning about a bizarre new internet craze.

Eilish Massie reports.


The opposition didn’t waste any time, first up the Cross River Rail Link claiming the government had gone soft.

Deb Frecklington, Dep. Opp Leader: “A failure to deliver it’s own delivery authority that’s meant to, by their own words, deliver their number one infrastructure project.”

But it didn’t stop there.

The government also came under fire over last week’s announcement to sell or redevelop assets like the old Oxley High School and the Mayne Rail Yards at Bowen Hills.

Jackie Trad, Deputy Premier: “Our approach to managing government land couldn’t more different to the approach taken by Campbell Newman and the leader of the opposition in the last term.”

But it was the issue of mental health that the opposition chose to continue their attack on the government.”

The LNP maintains the sector is under resourced and at an all time low.

Before all that, serious concerns about clowns, the internet and the police resources.

Bill Byrne, Qld Police Minister: “That’s why the Palaszczuk government condemns the recent clown craze that’s hit our state and the antisocial behaviour that’s associated with it.”

It’s a response to a growing trend of posting images like these on Facebook.

Bill Byrne, Qld Police Minister: “Our police do an important job in keeping our community safe and the last thing this state needs is for our policing resources to be wasted due to the people running around dressed up as clowns, intimidating and scaring members of our community.”

Parliament sits again tomorrow and Thursday.
