MP to meet trustee over Gladstone Foundation concerns

GLADSTONE state MP Glenn Butcher has organised a meeting with the Public Trustee on Monday, May 4, to express his concerns about the slow release of Gladstone Foundation funds.

Mr Butcher said he was most concerned that just $4.8 million of the $13.5 million fund had been released by the foundation fund since it was first established in 2011.

The fund is the result of contributions from the three LNG proponent companies to mitigate the impact of construction of the LNG plants on Curtis Island.
