LNP's good mood in Parliament short-lived

THE LNP Government chose a rough day to pat itself on the back.

On the first sitting day of Queensland Parliament for the week, the LNP opened the session by having its senior ministers praise the government's work in the lead-up to its one-year anniversary in power since routing the ALP in the March 24 poll last year.

Premier Campbell Newman, Deputy Premier Jeff Seeney, Treasurer Tim Nicholls and others spoke about the mess that faced Queensland when it was under the control of the now-Opposition.

But the mood of the LNP - buoyed by reminding itself of hard-won successes, including the Co-ordinator General's record-breaking run of approvals - was short-lived.

Opposition Leader Annastacia Palaszczuk demanded scrutiny for Redcliffe MP Scott Driscoll who faces allegations of inappropriate business dealings.

Accusations have swirled around the Member for Redcliffe as media reports claimed he used his office as a clandestine base to run the Queensland Retail Traders and Shopkeepers Association. He is a former president of the group.

Mr Driscoll told Parliament he would update his wife's interest register on Tuesday to reflect the income she earns from her company, which allegedly received consultancy fees from a government-funded community organisation.

A report was also tabled to Parliament showing the Crime and Misconduct Commission cleared Mr Driscoll of "official misconduct" because even if proven, it did not amount to a criminal offence.

The explanation was not enough for the Opposition, which continued its attack on Mr Driscoll as it quizzed the Premier and Ministers about the potential consequences of his actions.

Following questions posed by Opposition MP Curtis Pitt, Attorney-General Jarrod Bleijie told the ALP to "put up or shut up".

"If they have evidence, refer it to the relevant authorities," Mr Bleijie said.

Ms Palaszczuk said she had written to Clerk of Parliament Neil Laurie about Mr Driscoll's register of interests.
