WATCH: Gladstone man gives MPs a piece of his mind

Yesterday Flynn MP Ken O'Dowd and small business minister Bruce Billson met in Gladstone to make the announcement.

Mr O'Brien confronted the ministers to explain why he wasn't impressed.

"Compared to what Gladstone's putting out, that's like something out of their back pocket," he said.

The ministers laughed off the comment.
