Royal Commission into water costs in Queensland

Eligibility - Queensland citizens

Principal Petitioner:

Dennis Austen
133 Redcliffe Parade

Total Signatures - 176

Sponsoring Member: Glen Elmes MP

Posting Date: 24/11/2010

Tabled Date: 24/11/2010

Responded By: Hon Stephen Robertson MP on 24/12/2010

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

The petition of citizens of Queensland draws to the attention of the House that the establishment, implementation and management of the provision of water to South East Queensland has been mismanaged and taxpayers funds have been wasted and continuing to be wasted causing unnecessarily high charges for water provision.


Your petitioners, therefore, request the House to establish a Royal Commission into the establishment and running of the water grid, the establishment and running of the water commission and the prices and justification of those prices for water provision by the newly established water retailers.
