INDEPENDENT, 1—Gordon. in voting against this motion, I understand the member for Indooroopilly moved a similar disallowance motion in 2011 and at that time I voted against an increase in fees. This time, some four years later and after a three-year freeze, I believe the circumstances are different. I understand the former government’s budget documents show its own 2014-15 budget included a 3.5 per cent increase in the registration fee in its forward estimates for 2015-16. I understand this government’s proposed Local Government and Other Legislation Amendment Bill increase of 3.5 per cent is identical to that planned by the former government. I also understand the budget forecast that the loss of revenue from this indexation would result in a $580 million black hole between now and 2018-19, and some $51 million this financial year alone. I also understand that, with this government’s indexation rate of 3.5 per cent, the total cost of registering a vehicle in Queensland will remain competitive with, or lower than, many other states in Australia. I cast my vote with the noes.
