Responded By: Hon Peter Lawlor MP on 29/11/2010

TO: The Honourable the Speaker and Members of the Legislative Assembly of Queensland

The petition of the residents of Queensland draws to the attention of the House to the application for a liquor licence by Burleigh Beach House.

 

The Burleigh Beach House applied for a liquor license from 10.00am to 10.00pm Sunday to Thursday and from 10.00am to midnight on Friday and Saturday. Due to an error by Liquor Licensing, persons, including the local Member of Parliament were told an application had been made for a liquor licence from 10.00am to midnight every day of the week.

 

The local Member of Parliament has distributed information to the electorate of Burleigh suggesting that the Burleigh Beach House has sought a liquor licence from 10.00am to midnight every day of the week and is encouraging electors to object to the application for a liquor licence, providing pro-forma letters of objection to be completed and forwarded.

 

Your petitioners therefore request the House to note that petitioners strongly support the granting of the liquor licence to the Burleigh Beach House from 10.00am to 10.00pm Sunday to Thursday nights and 10.00am to midnight on Friday and Saturday nights. And further, that the House take such action as is necessary to have the liquor licence application by Burleigh Beach House considered in the normal way and based on the facts in its application and on the merits of the application and not be rejected on the basis of objections that are based on misinformation.
