Die for free says LNP

Springborg says we should ignore the 'silly fear campaign' being stirred-up that an LNP Government would re-introduce death duties.

"It won't happen. It's not on, and Queenslanders can be absolutely certain about that," he said today. "There will no death duties. There will be no new taxes."

Death duties were abolished by the Bjelke-Petersen conservative government in 1972. Queensland led the way in abolishing death duties, having an enormous impact. Eventually all States followed suit.
