The State Government is in breach of its own rules by covering up Wellcamp Secret Deal. The controversy over the State Government’s Secret Deal for the Wellcamp quarantine facility can’t be swept under the carpet.
The Government ministers have repeatedly declined to reveal the cost of building a 1,000-bed quarantine camp at the Wagner’s Wellcamp facility, insisting the deal was struck on “commercial in confidence” grounds.
Deputy Premier, Steven Miles, response was “The joint agreement at Wellcamp has enabled us to deliver an urgently needed fit-for-purpose quarantine facility as quickly as possible to continue to keep Queenslanders safe.” Keep Queenslander’s ‘safe’ from what?
The more the State Government hides the details the more the public should question why?
When Queenslanders are being asked to put a lot of trust in the State Government during a time of COVID-19 distress, then the State Government should put their trust in the people by giving them the information about this special deal.
This is public money, it’s not a private deal.
