Responding to Longreach priest Father Matthew Moloney's call for mercy from the banks towards heavily indebted graziers, the Member for Mount Isa Rob Katter and the Federal Member for Kennedy Bob Katter are joining forces with radio presenter Alan Jones of 2GB to call for a rural debt crisis summit in Winton on Friday 5 December 2014.
"Where are the jobs, the resources and the funding for North West Queensland?" is the question from Member for Mount Isa, Rob Katter in response to the Government's boasting of more jobs for the south east's rail project.
The Member for Mount Isa, Rob Katter said he found the statistics in the just released Chief Health Officer's Health Report "disturbing" but he reminded the Government that they cut the Public Health Unit from Mount Isa in 2012, and a large number of jobs were lost.
