Goss to be honoured in Qld parliament

Queensland's parliament will honour Wayne Goss with a condolence motion in its final sitting week.

Queensland's parliament will move a condolence motion to honour former premier Wayne Goss during the final sitting week of 2014.

Mr Goss, who died at the age of 63 after a long battle with brain cancer this month, was farewelled at a public memorial service in Brisbane on Friday.

He was premier between 1989 and 1996.

The condolence motion will be moved by the House on Tuesday.

The final sitting week of 2014 could also see the Newman government come under attack for its advertising spending to promote a hospital waiting list guarantee.

Queensland's Code of Conduct for government Advertising dictates that there should be no advertising within six months of a scheduled date for an election.

The Queensland poll is due in March 2015 but is yet to be called.

The Health Minister has disputed that the material constituted election advertising.

The House will sit until Thursday this week before rising until February 2015.
