Exorbitant car park charges at public hospitals in Queensland

Eligibility - Queensland residents

Principal Petitioner:

Barry Wilson
47-49 Kauri Court

Total Signatures - 1579

Sponsoring Member: The Clerk of the Parliament

Posting Date: 21/07/2020

Closing Date: 6/09/2020

Tabled Date: 8/09/2020

Responded By: Hon Dr Steven Miles MP on 8/10/2020

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

Queensland residents draws to the attention of the House the exorbitant car park cost imposed on residents attending Queensland hospitals and using government owned car parks whilst undertaking medical tests and/or seeing doctors or specialists. For example, a two and a half hour visit to the Prince Charles Hospital in Brisbane for tests and an appointment cost twenty-two dollars in parking fees.

Your petitioners, therefore, request the House that the Queensland Premier no longer be allowed to refer to Queensland as the low tax state whilst hospital patients are forced to pay exorbitant car park fees whilst attending appointments at public hospitals and using government owned car parks.
