    Statement on the use of trailers in Queensland

    The Palaszczuk Government has made no changes to trailer towing rules in Queensland.

    These trailer towing rule changes are set by the Federal Government.

    The federal changes will not come into effect next month in Queensland.

    I will be raising all issues presented to me by stakeholders with my federal colleagues.

    Safety is of course our highest priority, but the Palaszczuk Government will absolutely reject any changes that unnecessarily disadvantage Queensland drivers or our wider state economy.
