Labor's VLAD Law Review

Eligibility - Queensland residents

Principal Petitioner:

Ray Stevens MP
Shop 1, 2434 Gold Coast Highway
Mermaid Beach Qld 4218

Total Signatures - 1108

Sponsoring Member: The Clerk of the Parliament

Posting Date: 25/08/2015

Closing Date: 30/11/2015

Tabled Date: 1/12/2015

Responded By: Hon Yvette D'Ath MP on 4/01/2016

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

Queensland residents draw the attention of the House to the review of the VLAD Laws, with the current Labor Government's intention to repeal and replace the 2013 legislation. Queensland Residents have experienced a reduction in the Criminal Bikie presence since the introduction of the VLAD Laws, which is positively impacting our communities.

 

Your petitioners, therefore, request the House to ask the VLAD Review taskforce not to recommend the repeal or replacement of the 2013 legislation and to retain the VLAD Laws as they currently stand with further strengthening recommendations as required.
