Jo-Ann Miller may end up on "Tarago's roof racks"

BUNDAMBA MP Jo-Ann Miller was told she could end up on the "roof racks" of the Labor Party's "Tarago" when a health funding question without notice turned into a personal attack during yesterday's Question Time.

Ipswich MP Ian Berry had asked Queensland Treasurer Tim Nicholls about changes to health funding which harked back to the Bundamba MP's question on Tuesday about a consolidated funds quarterly report reducing Queensland Health funds more than $1 billion.

Mr Nicholls told Queensland Parliament the decrease in service delivery revenue was because of a reclassification and if she had looked closer she would have seen grants and charges had increased.

"Yesterday wasn't a good day for the Member for Bundamba," he said.

"We know she had her difficulties with the ethics committee but yesterday she was also set up by the shadow treasurer."

Mr Nicholls said he was not sure "what factional games are going on over there" on the other side of parliament but he suggested she had gone from the front seat of the Tarago to the backseat.

"And soon she'll be on the roof rack," he said.

The Tarago joke has regularly been wheeled out to reflect the small number of Labor MPs elected during the LNP's landside victory last year.
