Federal MPs are calling for the Queensland premier to stop ‘reneging’ on their commitment under the national plan to reunite the country.
Federal ministers are calling on the Queensland and Western Australian premiers to recommit to the national plan to reunite Australia by Christmas.
Deputy Prime Minister Barnaby Joyce said Annastacia Palalszczuk was acting as if she “knew better” than the Doherty Institute, whose modelling forms the basis of the national plan for reopening.
David Littleproud said Annastacia Palaszczuk’s “reneging” on the national plan was not only casting doubt on holiday plans but was also continuing to cost the state’s tourism industry “billions”.
“When you look at the Gold Coast, a billion dollars will be lost in just this quarter,” Mr Littleproud told Today on Monday.
