Dale’s Parliament Update May 2022

Dale Last MP Member for Burdekin

TWO years ago, our world was turned upside down when Covid-19 arrived on our doorstep.

No one could have predicted the impact this virus would have on our lives and our community and that has continued to this day.

In the last sitting of Parliament, the Bill to extend the emergency powers of the Chief Health Officer was debated.

Despite the LNP, including myself, voting against the Public Health and Other Legislation Amendment Bill, the Bill was passed by the Government using their majority in the Queensland Parliament.

During the sitting I took the time to speak about the impact this pandemic has had on our electorate, the need for transparency around the health advice and how we as a community have continued to go above and beyond to keep everyone safe.
