Queensland minister asks questions after he warns of massive budget cuts

Queensland Minister for Tourism and Sport, Shane Rattenbury, said he would be concerned the Government’s “no sacrifice” ticket policy did not apply바카라 to the airport.

“We certainly will not be making further discretionary funding cuts at this time,” he said.

Mr Sellars warned that any taxpayer money coming from the airport to boost tourism was unlikely to happen any time soon.

“There’s no need for us to cut services or take it away from the people who use it,” he said.

“There’s a couple of areas of spending, because we’re using airport infrastructure and ticket services, that can’t change, so I think, to avoid the prospect of these kind of cuts, we’ll try and keep as much of those as we can and support as much of the growth and activity that you would expect with the growth we’re currently seeing.”

The new passenger terminal will create around 4,400 jobs.

“We will 카지노 사이트work within the environment in which the project takes place to make sure it maximises that opportunity,” Mr Sellars said.

A passenger terminal is required for the new airport’s arrival, when it is due to open in 2024.

The Government announced earlier this year that it would spend $80 million in the airport’s construction and operational costs over a 30-year period – but the first of those was to start in 2013.

The Government has said some $65 million from Queenslanders’ travel revenue is expected to go to the airport and has indicated a willingness to accept more in future if the Airport Development Corporation is successful in the $12-million tender process in coming weeks.
