LNP apologise over corruption claims

Sonia Kohlbacher

Queensland opposition leader Deb Frecklington and two of her frontbenchers have apologised for accusing Deputy Premier Jackie Trad of ignoring corruption allegations against Ipswich City Council.

Liberal National Party leader Deb Frecklington, her deputy Tim Mander and education spokesman Jarrod Bleijie on Tuesday accused the deputy premier of ignoring 326 complaints when she was local government minister between 2015 and 2017.

Ms Trad wrote to Speaker Curtis Pitt asking him to refer the three opposition MPs to the ethics committee for misleading parliament.
