A group representing taxi drivers in Queensland has denied a multi-million dollar "fighting fund" will be donated to Pauline Hanson's One Nation.
Taxi Council Queensland member Peter Conohan told the ABC on Monday that members had voted unanimously on Tuesday in favour of a $720-per-head levy, equating to about $2.3 million in total, to support the party before the upcoming state election.
"This is most probably our last chance. Pauline is a worker, she voices her opinion very verbally, where everyone else has put their head in the sand," Mr Conohan told ABC Radio.
Senator Hanson has been a vocal critic of the Palaszczuk government's decision to legalise ride-sharing services such as Uber in August last year.
A number of taxi licence holders phoned in to the station after the interview to express support or opposition for the move.
But the Taxi Council released a statement denying any money would go towards One Nation.
It said while Senator Hanson had addressed the meeting at Brisbane's Convention Centre "no finances whatsoever are going towards any political candidate or party".
"Senator Pauline Hanson and Steve Dickson MP addressed a general meeting of Taxi Council Queensland yesterday and pledged to support the taxi industry and fight for fairness in upcoming legislation around personalised transport," the council said.
"We welcome that support, and we also welcome the support of any other MP from any party."
Fellow taxi licence holder Lucy Hooke was also at the meeting, and told AAP the fund is simply the normal levy imposed on licence holders, but with three years worth of payments squeezed into two due to the coming state election.
"I'm not a One Nation supporter, but at the moment I'll support anyone who wants to fight for the taxi industry."
LNP defector Steve Dickson, who is now the state leader of One Nation, said while he wasn't privy to the vote, he welcomes the Taxi Council's support.
"I mean, if every taxi driver in Queensland is starting to tell people that they've been done over by the two major parties, and we're the only party that supports them, then yes I'll take that on board every day," he told ABC Radio.
The state government last year set up a $100 million assistance package to support the taxi industry, and Transport Minister Stirling Hinchliffe yesterday said more than $18 million of that had already been allocated, with a further 834 applications being assessed or awaiting payment.
