STATEMENT FROM MEMBER FOR MOUNT ISA ROB KATTER & MEMBER FOR DALRYMPLE SHANE KNUTH

KAP has reserved its opinion on the Queensland Government’s latest bikie law proposals.

“We have not seen the full detail of the proposed legislation, and at this stage we are yet to come to a position on it,” Mr Katter said.

“When the Newman laws were introduced at a minute to midnight we were angry and had deep concerns that this would do more harm than good to rights of the individual in Queensland.”

“This needs to be a fair process,” he said.

Member for Dalrymple Shane Knuth said he wanted to ensure the recreational bikies were not impacted by the proposed legislation.

“At this point in time we do have some questions and perhaps concerns but will wait to see the outcome of the committee process,”

The KAP crossbenchers will continue to consult with relevant community groups on this issue.
