Media Release – LNP Shadow Ministry Announced (28 February 2015)

Leader of the Opposition Lawrence Springborg announced his Shadow Ministry today demonstrating the right balance of experience, competency and stability.

“This Shadow Cabinet will ensure our carefully selected team will serve the interests of all Queenslanders,” Mr Springborg said.

“The 18 Shadow Ministries reflect the rural and urban mix of our great state,”

“While Labor has no plan other than an infrastructure freeze, we will continue to build on the achievements the LNP has delivered over the last three years,”

“This team is based on merit, unlike Labor where union leaders dictate who gets a cabinet seat.” he said.

Deputy Leader John-Paul Langbroek said he was honoured to be taking on the role of Shadow Treasurer and Minister for Commonwealth Games.

“This year the LNP was set to deliver its first budget surplus in more than a decade and we are determined to hold the Government to account,” Mr Langbroek said.

“It is no secret Labor’s history of looking after the state’s budget was dismal and Queensland can’t afford to rack up more debt on the credit card.”

“The coming months are also a crucial time for the 2018 Commonwealth Games and as a proud Gold Coast MP, we can’t afford to let the momentum slip.”

Mr Springborg said the LNP team was ready to expose Labor’s inexperience and inaction.

“In a minority Government, the role of the parliamentary committees will be even more crucial. With his wealth of experience Jeff Seeney has agreed to oversee the critical role of Chairman of the opposition’s Parliamentary Policy Committees.”

“Queenslanders deserve better than a Government with no policies, refers the big decisions to committees and is just making it up on the run.”
