Assets won't be leased unless price is right - Newman

'Queensland's Premier has promised to take public assets off the table if offers to lease them are not fair. Power generators and electricity transmission and distribution lines are among assets that could be leased for 50 or 99 years under a plan announced in June. The Government said it would reap at least $33 billion, most of which would pay down debt, but has yet reveal if there have been any takers. In New South Wales, the Government took a power station off the market after bids failed to to raise enough money.'
