Sourcing critical railway upgrade funding needs cool heads and smart solutions
Annastacia Palaszczuk has refused to admonish her deputy Jackie Trad after she secretly purchased a property along the route of the $5.4 billion Cross River Rail project.
The Premier yesterday sidestepped questions about the scandal that has engulfed Ms Trad and instead urged all MPs to follow Parliament’s disclosure rules.
“All MPs are urged to satisfy their requirements,” she said in a statement after being asked if she thought Ms Trad’s purchase of the inner-city property was appropriate.

The Courier-Mail revealed yesterday Ms Trad bought a Woolloongabba property near the existing Park Road station and the future Boggo Road Gaol station in March but failed to declare it on Parliament’s Register of Member’s Interests.
The property is also within the catchment of the new Inner City South Secondary College being built by the Palaszczuk Government.
Labor figures were yesterday appalled that Ms Trad had purchased a property likely to rise in value as a result of a project that she has ministerial responsibility for.
“I’m actually in shock,” one senior player said.
Ms Palaszczuk’s reluctance to criticise the powerful Left faction leader’s controversial real estate play came after it emerged another of Ms Trad’s property deals had not been disclosed.
