PUP postpones Senate inquiry hearings in Gladstone

A SENATE inquiry hearing into the conduct of the LNP due to be held in Gladstone on Thursday has been postponed.

Palmer United Party Queensland senator Glenn Lazarus said hearings in Gladstone and Bundaberg had been postponed to a later date.

"The committee hasn't met as yet, but unfortunately a lot of our witnesses weren't able to make those dates," he told The Observer's sister paper the Bundaberg NewsMail.

The Senate inquiry into the Queensland Government was set up by PUP late last year, with support from the ALP and the Greens.

It was expected to report at the end of March, a timeline that was set in place before Premier Campbell Newman called an election for Saturday.

It's believed that at the Gladstone and Bundaberg hearings, the only witnesses due to appear were groups that had already made submissions to the inquiry.
