Why did you table the Bill in the Upper House?

A:

In other states, the Upper House or House of Review is where dodgy decisions can be stopped. But Queensland’s Upper House was abolished in 1922 so since then, all sorts of conflicts of interests between politicians and the big end of town have flourished unabated. We say, reinstate the Upper House to restore balance to Queensland’s political system. A state-wide referendum is needed to bring back the lost Upper House and our Bill proposes to trigger a referendum to give Queenslanders a vote on this crucial question of how our democracy works.
