    Palaszczuk Government delivers on its commitments to Queenslanders

    The Palaszczuk Government has delivered 80% of its 553 election commitments in its first two years in office.

    Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk tabled a report in State Parliament today – two years since the Government took office – that showed 442 of the 553 commitments made before the 2015 election had been delivered.

    “That’s 80% of our commitments delivered 66% of the way through a three-year term,” the Premier said.

    “We stopped the sale of assets.”

    “We are restoring frontline services.”

    “Two years ago, Queenslanders told us they wanted frontline services restored.

    “Between March 2015 and September 2016, we have appointed more than 2390 new nurses, 770 new doctors, 1990 new teachers, 990 new teacher aides and more than 250 new police officers.”

    “We have announced 129 new child safety positions, in addition to the 166 employed over the last two years to help rebuild our Child Safety Services workforce. This contrast to the 225 positions cut by the LNP.”

    “Nine out of every ten public servants are now employed in frontline services and frontline support roles.”
