Queensland Residents draws to the attention of the House: to the decision by the Palaszczuk Government that saw Maleny Dairies, a Queensland owned and operated company, miss out on a supply contract for Metro North Hospitals that was instead awarded to French and Chinese companies. This is in defiance of the Governments “Buy Queensland Policy”. The decision will have a significant impact on Maleny Dairies that would have used the contract to secure another Queensland owned dairy farming family and create jobs within that farm, working towards securing the future of the Queensland Dairy Industry.

Your petitioners, therefore, request the House to: call on the Palaszczuk Government to review the decision, including awarding at least a portion of the supply contract to Maleny Dairies – a proud Queensland owned and operated company.
