Federal Member for Capricornia Michelle Landry says the hospital carpark was not on the Queensland Labor Government’s radar until she pushed for it and committed $7 Million during the federal election.
“Once again, the Member for Keppel needs to get her facts straight,” said Ms Landry.
“The Department of Infrastructure is currently working with Queensland Health.
“The latest correspondence was sent to Queensland Health on May 1 requesting information so the funding can be settled.
“Any delay in releasing funding is, once again, solely at the hands of Ms Lauga’s own government.
“As soon as the information is provided, it will take four weeks for the funding to be released.
Ms Landry said that as with a number of other projects and programs, Ms Lauga was not letting facts get in the way.
“Ms Lauga has previously falsely accused the coalition of cutting funding to legal centres, schools and breast screening.
“All of these remain in the budget with funding levels maintained or increased,” Ms Landry said.
