Following a speech I made in the parliament last week, the Queensland Nurses’ Union issued a media release yesterday claiming:

Lindsay’s attack on Queensland nurses’ pay rise confirms the Howard Government is about cutting pay.

The media release went on to say:

Mr Lindsay has confirmed ... the Howard government and its supporters, such as Mr Lindsay, undervalue nurses.

There was nothing in my speech about cutting nurses’ pay. I am on the public record supporting the work of nurses and their pay rise.
