Taking Flynn Forward

Stay Up To Date

On June 10, I was honoured to be officially declared as the Member for Flynn by the Australian Electoral Commission.

Firstly, I would like to thank the people of Flynn for electing me as your federal representative.

It is an incredible privilege to represent the rural and industrial electorate of Flynn and the almost 110,000 voters who call it home.

Thank you to my volunteers and family who have helped me along the way, I could not have done it without you.

I am committed to taking Flynn forward and holding the Labor Government to account on the promises that were made for Central Queensland.

The impacts of skyrocketing power prices on local households and businesses have been front and centre today as I hosted Shadow Minister for Climate Change and Energy Ted O'Brien MP - Federal Member for Fairfax in Gladstone.

Gladstone is the second region Ted has visited as part of a wider ‘listening tour’ in key locations across the National Energy Market (NEM) on the East Coast of Australia.

I've enjoyed showing the Shadow Minister around the region and introducing him to a wide range of stakeholders including industry leaders and small business owners.

During the trip, we visited several local businesses as well as organised a stakeholder engagement roundtable to hear what concerns and opportunities lie ahead for Central Queensland.

We also spoke to representatives from companies set to be affected by the Labor Government’s proposed safeguard mechanism.

✋You can no longer bring bees or beehives into Queensland without a permit.

We're working to make sure our valuable honeybee industry and recreational beekeepers remain free from the threat of varroa mite.🐝

The new Movement Control Order means if you want to bring bees or bee hives into the state, including returning bees that originated here, you need to apply for a permit prior to entry.

I've called on the Labor Government to explain what their legislated emissions target will mean for industries in Central Queensland.

This is following Rio Tinto Australian chief executive Kellie Parker sounding a clear warning to the nation.

Ms Parker recently spoke at the Melbourne Mining Club expressing that renewable energy must be globally competitive with reliable supply.

Currently Boyne Smelters Limited, Yarwun Alumina Refinery and Queensland Alumina Limited rely on coal fired power for their energy.

Australian manufacturing requires affordable, 24/7 base load power to compete with the rest of the world.

Rio Tinto have agreed with Labor legislating emission targets by 2030. However, they will not guarantee keeping aluminium smelters open in Australia if power prices get too high.

What does the Labor Government’s 43 per cent emissions target mean for us in Central Queensland? How is this going to affect us? How is this going to affect the manufacturing industries? What does it mean for our jobs?

This is what I want answered.

Under the Labor government’s legislated emission targets, huge compensation bills to manufacturers and energy companies will be normal.

This cost will be added to everyone’s electricity bill.

Labor have indirectly legislated for higher electricity prices in Australia.

Australian manufacturing requires affordable, 24/7 base load power to compete with the rest of the world.

Australia emits 1% of the worlds co2 emissions, and this emissions target will have zero affect on the worlds emissions.

Rio Tinto agree with Labor legislating emission targets by 2030, but they won’t guarantee keeping aluminium smelters open in Australia if power prices get too high.

The labor governments move to 80% renewable energy by 2030 will continue to increase electricity prices.

Renewable energy cannot supply 24/7 reliable and affordable electricity.
