Statement from Taxi Council Queensland
Reports this morning that Taxi Council Queensland (TCQ) is supporting One Nation are incorrect. No finances whatsoever are going towards any political candidate or party. Senator Pauline Hanson and Steve Dickson MP addressed a general meeting of TCQ yesterday and pledged to support the taxi industry and fight for fairness in upcoming legislation around personalised transport. We welcome that support, and we also welcome the support of any other MP from any party. For the past two years TCQ members have financially contributed to our campaign for fair legislation and yesterday’s commitment was a continuation of that. Like all peak bodies, TCQ relies on the financial support of members.
