Alcohol industry donors to LNP

‘The Newman Government has pandered to one of its most generous donor industries in developing its plan to crack down on alcohol-fuelled violence, according to a not-for-profit group. The Foundation for Alcohol Research has crunched the numbers on three years of Queensland political donations made by the alcohol industry and found that 92 per cent were made to the LNP. The sector donated nearly $375,000 to the party in that time, according to the advocacy group. This may not be the true total figure either, with donation threshholds raised to include only payments above $12,400 last year. The vast majority of industry donations came from the hotel sector, with clubs, casinos, alcohol outlets and alcohol producers also among the donor groups.’ (Brisbane Times, 23.1.15)
