A Tim Nicholls led Liberal-National Government has pledged to put a freeze on rego hikes for three years to help ease rising cost of living pressures for Queensland families.
This comes as this Labor Government has just slugged Queensland families for the third year running with another 3.5% increase on family car registration, effective from 1 July 2017.
Labor’s family car rego slug means a four-cylinder family car now costs $700 to register – a jump of $50 in just two years – which is double the rate of inflation!
Queensland families are already hurting with bills piling up and this further cash grab will put further pressure on tight family budgets.
By comparison the LNP froze car rego costs for the three years when we were in government and we’ve committed that any future rises are kept in line with CPI – not double the inflation rate like we’ve seen under Labor.
The LNP’s family rego freeze will save a Queensland family with two 6-cylinder cars $200 over three years.
