BUNDAMBA MP Jo-Ann Miller says Premier Campbell Newman has run out of ideas less than a year into the job.

Mr Newman announced yesterday plans to hold town hall-style meetings to gauge community ideas.

Mrs Miller said the Premier's plan showed he had no ideas of his own.

"Neither, it seems, do his ministers or huge backbench have any bright ideas," she said.

"This comes a day after the Premier launched a Six-Month Action plan which contained no new ideas and initiatives of the previous Labor government."

Mrs Miller said the meetings idea was a rehash of the previous Labor government's plan.

If the Premier had not fired all the senior public servants with all their corporate knowledge he would be aware that this data is already available to him.

"If the Premier had not fired all the senior public servants with all their corporate knowledge he would be aware that this data is already available to him.

"I suspect as the Premier travels through the state holding his town-hall meetings he will be reminded by local residents that they have already provided their ideas and input to government."
