During this difficult time of change and hardship, I am thinking about all the community groups and not-for-profit, volunteer run organisations who are being financially impacted by closure.

 

These small organisations are vitally important to country communities. If your local, volunteer run entity still has to meet rental or lease obligations, maintenance costs for grounds and so on please refer to the following link to the Queensland Government website https://www.business.qld.gov.au/ which outlines the relief available for small business and commercial tenancies. In addition the Queensland State Hotline 1300 654687 and Federal Support Hotline 132846 are available to answer your queries.

Of course, please contact my office directly on 4570 4100 if you require assistance and my team will try to get the information you need.

ACLAND STAGE 3 VISIT

July 6th, 2021

Great to see the Federal Minister for Resources and Water, the Hon Keith Pitt MP and the Member for Groom, Garth Hamilton MP, visit Acland today in support of the Stage 3 New Acland Mine expansion.

I note Labor's candidate for the Federal seat of Flynn is advocating for approval by the Palaszczuk Government for Stage 3.

Does the Federal Opposition Leader, Anthony Albanese MP, support the candidate for Flynn or the Qld Premier?

I spoke in the Qld Parliament last Thursday raising concerns to the Premier's lack of response to questions asked over the past months relating to the health plan for the proposed Wellcamp Quarantine Facility.

Pat Weir - Fighting for Farmers

 

I rose in Parliament last night to raise concerns on the Animal Activists intimidation of farmers.

I called upon the Palaszczuk government to strengthen the laws and penalities that apply to individuals or groups found to be trespassing on private property before there is a major breach of biosecurity protocols
