Neil Breen appeals for leaders to move on Wellcamp quarantine proposal
Neil Breen has this morning called for state and federal leaders to approve the Wellcamp Airport quarantine proposal.
“I can’t see why it can’t happen,” he said. “It’s just bureaucracy and it’s politics and it’s wrangling and it’s annoying.”
“The Queensland Government’s hell bent on this proposal about regional quarantine centres for international travellers.
“She’s calling on the federal government to do more to help with hotel quarantine and that hotels are not built for lockdowns, they’re for tourists.
“That’s why she wants quarantine in regional cities.
“I think we need to work together, our Premier, the Prime Minister, the Wagner family in Toowoomba, because the Wellcamp Airport proposal has legs. It’s all there!
“The Wagners are astute businessmen. They’ve got the whole thing under control.”
Scott Morrison stated to the press following the national cabinet meeting today the proposal as it stands is an “outline and there’s a lot more to fill in”.
“We’re looking at it on its merits and are not opposed to it in principle to things of this nature.
“We’ve got to look at what the relative merits are of how we expand those types of capacities.”
