Newman’s plan for more Queensland regional casino resorts a firm bet under Labor

Amy Remeikis reports in the Brisbane Times (16.3.16) on suggestions that the Labor state government will push ahead with proposals for more new casinos in Queensland, a plan put forward by the previous Newman LNP government.

‘Labor is not backing away from the Newman government casino plan, announcing that if either of the two regional integrated resort development proposals fall over, it reserves the right to look elsewhere.

‘The Newman government offered three more casino licences to the private sector as a carrot to build what it called interrelated resort developments, envisioning developments which could compete with those in the Middle East and Asia.

‘The Star Casino Group won one and will build the Queen’s Wharf development in the Brisbane CBD.’
