Date set for Ipswich flood hearing
THE Queensland Floods Commission of Inquiry has announced the first round of public hearings into the 2011 flood disaster.
The hearings will focus on issues to be covered in the inquiry’s interim report on matters associated with the state’s preparedness for the floods.
The interim report is due in August this year.
Public hearings have been scheduled for Ipswich on May 20 but will also be held in Brisbane, Toowoomba, Rockhampton, the Darling Downs and other flood-affected towns in April and May.
Further public hearings will be held in Bundaberg, Maryborough and Gympie later in 2011.
The commission will also hold consultations this month in Grantham and Murphys Creek.
