Tomorrow, drivers from Indooroopilly electorate will pay more for car registration than ever before as Labor’s unfair increase comes into effect.

Member for Indooroopilly Scott Emerson said while the LNP froze car registration for three years, Labor is slugging drivers with an increase two and a half times the inflation rate.

“This increase is unfair and puts unnecessary cost of living pressure on the families in my electorate of Indooroopilly,” Mr Emerson said.

“In Parliament, the LNP moved a disallowance motion to stop the 3.5 per cent increase however every single Labor MP voted for it to stay.

“Stephen Miles MP, Member for Mount Coot-tha, has let his constituents down and should be ashamed.

“Queenslanders voted for a government that put their interest first, not the interests of its party.”

Opposition Leader Lawrence Springborg said Labor is using Queensland taxpayers as cash cows to compensate for its lack of an economic plan.

“With the budget only two weeks away, Queenslanders will be wondering if they will have to reach into their own pockets, like they have had to with car registration, to help the struggling Treasurer balance the books,” Mr Springborg said.

“Queenslanders didn’t vote for massive price hikes and that is exactly what they have got from Labor.”
