It’s time for Labor to back jobs and approve New Acland Stage 3

Toowoomba Regional Council has one of the worst unemployment figures in Australia, and the Queensland Government is happy to see that increase as New Hope Group announces further redundancies. There is only one reason this has not been passed and it is green votes in the inner city.

COVID-19 - available support for community groups and not-for-profits

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.

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 

that our state's economy can ill afford and to assure a safe environment for landholders, their families and staff who live and work there.

Pat is proud to serve in his second term as the Member for Condamine. (The electorate of Condamine electorate has changed as at the November 2017 election and now takes in areas up to Crows Nest, Goombungee to the north of Toowoomba)

 

Pat will also serve on the State Development, Natural Resources and Agricultural Industry Development Committee in this 2nd term.
