Clive Palmer will reverse Queensland asset sell-off

FEDERAL MP Clive Palmer has said he would reverse any Queensland government asset sales if his party wins seats at the Queensland state election next year.

The Newman government is expected to announce a number of asset sales at tonight's budget.

Mr Palmer said any asset sales were against the wishes of Queenslanders.

He has warned business interested in buying Queensland assets that if his party were to win seats in the state election, it would reverse any assets sold-off by the Newman government.

"If any assets are sold between now and the next election, and we are forming part of the Queensland government, we will immediately resume them without compensation," he told reporters in Canberra.

"So it's a matter of buyer beware; we're not going to see our assets sold off to the highest bidder."
