Anti-bikie laws to be debated in Qld Parliament

Queensland’s anti-bikie law reforms are set to be debated in Parliament this week.

Labor wants to make some changes to the LNP’s legislation, which would be similar to what is already in place in New South Wales.

The former LNP Government made some dramatic changes, introducing the Vicious Lawless Association Disestablishment (VLAD) laws after a bikie brawl broke out in Broadbeach in September 2013.


The Palaszczuk Government wants to increase maximum sentences for child exploitation and fraud, introduce a public safety order scheme and post-conviction control powers for courts.

Police Minister Bill Byrne recently visited Surfers Paradise police station where he stressed there would be a ban on club colours being worn in public.

Politicians are also set to debate a bill to remove 17-year-olds from adult jails.  Parliament resumes on Tuesday.
