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.
