Labors Cuts Express makes quick stop in Bay
UNDER the cover of darkness, Labor's Cuts Express rolled into Hervey Bay on their first stop of their Queensland tour.
The bus, which features cutouts of former Premier Campbell Newman and State Opposition Leader Tim Nicholls and warning of "more cuts” under an LNP government, will target about 50 electorates in the final week of the campaign
Ministers Mark Ryan, Leeanne Enoch, Cameron Dick and Yvette D'ath spent the first night of the tour visiting frontline staff at the Hervey Bay Hospital on Tuesday.
"We've stopped here at Hervey Bay to thank our hard working staff on night shift... for the work they do,” Mr Dick said.
"We're working long days to make sure we get from Brisbane to Cairns to remind Queenslanders of the savage cuts Tim Nicholls implemented when he was Treasurer in Campbell Newman's government.”
In line with their promise to employ new nurses across the state, Mr Dick said they would be funding more staff as the new emergency department finishes construction.
