Labor unsure of job creation, says LNP keeps figures secret

OPPOSITION Leader Annastacia Palaszczuk is not exactly sure how many jobs will be created in the next three years because she says the LNP has refused to give them access to documents.

Speaking to media in Brisbane earlier today, where she announced 20 new school nurses for across the state, Ms Palaszczuk said she would have to sit down and look at the books to determine how many jobs would be created in the next term.

She said Treasury had job growth projections.

"This is a government that had denied the opposition access to information over the last three years," she said.

"I want to see those treasury projections. I want to sit down with treasury officials and open up the books and see that this government has been hiding for the last three years."

She also said Labor's costings and law and order policy would be announced tomorrow.

When asked about infrastructure, Ms Palaszczuk also said they had committed to providing Townsville with $100 million for a stadium. She also said they would create an infrastructure plan while in their first year of government.
