KAP MPs meet with both sides, but still left wanting

AS SOON as Katter's Australian Party MPs Rob Katter and Shane Knuth finished talking with LNP members yesterday, they went straight into a meeting with Labor.

The KAP MPs yesterday still had not confirmed which major party they would support if their votes were needed to form a minority government, but negotiations with Labor and the LNP had continued.

The Katter pair released a list of 21 priority policies on Monday.

On their list is removing flying foxes from populated areas, banning 100% fly-in fly-out mines, introducing statutory marketing to reduce supermarket dominance in sugar and milk industries and ensuring councils choose local contractors for projects.

Mr Knuth said there had been positive signs from the major parties but nothing substantial enough for them to choose. He also said they would wait for parties to respond in writing to their policy list.
