Police Minister under fire in budget estimates hearing, asked to resign 3 times

ALEX HEINKE reports.

Queensland Police Minister Jo-Ann Miller refused to answer questions regarding her political future when facing heavy criticism from the Opposition on Thursday.

She was under fire with questions regarding recommissioning the Borallon jail, extending the Queensland Police Commissioner’s contract, and about the breeds of police dogs.


LNP police spokesman Jarrod Bleijie asked three times whether Ms Miller would resign over her handling of sensitive documents and was continually ruled out of order.

Committee chairman and government MP Mark Furner said the Opposition had to stick to budget questions.

Agriculture, Fisheries, Sport and Racing Minister Bill Byrne and Environment Minister Steven Miles will front estimates on Friday.
