Eligibility - Queensland residents

Principal Petitioner:

PO Box 5326
WEST END QLD 4101

Total Signatures - 781

Sponsoring Member: Jo-Ann Miller MP

Posting Date: 23/08/2012

Closing Date: 29/10/2012

Tabled Date: 30/10/2012

Responded By: Hon Tim Mander MP on 30/11/2012

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

Queensland residents draws to the attention of the House the appalling decision by the LNP Queensland Government to axe funding to the Tenant Advice and Advocacy Service, Queensland Tenants Union, Caravan and Manufactured Home Residents Association of Queensland Inc. and many other services that provide frontline advocacy for housing tenants.

 

These services are a vital resource to many Queenslanders, and their loss will result in many losing their voice when it comes to disputes in the private and social housing market. Further, services funded under TAASQ intervene to prevent homelessness amongst Queensland families and their absence will have a negative affect on homeless rates in Queensland.

 

Your petitioners therefore request the House to compel the LNP Queensland Government to revoke its decision and reinstate full funding to the above mentioned services.
