Mr BRAITHWAITE —I give notice that, on the next day of sitting, I shall move:

That this House-

(1) notes the-

(a) proud record of the Queensland Government in doubling the jobs available in that State from 487,300 to 976,300 over the past 15 years;

(b) undertaking given by the Minister for Sport, Recreation and Tourism and Minister for Administrative Services to exclude penalty rates from industrial awards affecting the travel and tourist industry; and

(c) additional jobs that would be opened in the fast growing tourist industry in northern Australia by the removal of penalty rates and the subsequent reduction in the cost of travel and recreation for the tourist;

(2) Calls on the Government to cease its penalising of northern Australia and to honour its pre-election commitment to remove such penalty rates to create further jobs for our young people and improve on the already impressive record of the Queensland Government.
