Queenslanders are doing it tough. The cost of food for our families, fuel to get around and things we do to enjoy ourselves are getting more expensive. Every quarter, each Queensland household receives a rude surprise with the arrival of the electricity bills. Electricity prices in Queensland are some of the highest in Australia. Whether that is Labor or Liberal, whoever is in government slaps you with 10% GST on electricity, even though you need it to cook your food, light your home and keep yourself cool.
The Liberal Democrats propose a removal of GST from electricity prices in order to reduce these out of control expenses.
