Labor says "big stick" legislation will cause privatisation of electricity assets

September 17, 2019. Labor senator Murray Watt speaks the media in Canberra about the government's proposed "big stick" legislation. Mr Watt says the Labor party are still waiting to see the bill, but believes it may privatise electricity assets from government ownership that exists in his home state of Queensland. "One of the biggest threats that is the risk of privatisation of those state owned assets," Mr Watt says. "I don't how many times Queenslanders have got to say to the LNP we don't want privatisation, because we know that everywhere privatisation of power assets happens, it drives up power prices".
