Let’s mark this day in our calendar.
On the 15th July, 2019 Minister for Health Steven Miles admits that due to the different modes of transport used for patient transfers between hospitals, he said it is impossible to accurately quantify the total cost involved, to the region or the State for that matter. Please see answer below.
Therefore, there is no wonder that the State debt is estimated to be hurtling past $90 Billion in forward estimates and Queensland has long lost its Triple A credit rating.
Labor has no respect for taxpayers hard earned money, they have simply stopped caring because the management of this State is beyond them.
The evidence is here and clear.
