Survey fails parties on big issues

LITTLE difference existed between the major parties on issues relating to family, life and democracy, according to FamilyVoice state officer Graeme Mitchell.

He said the parties were sent a survey of 10 questions, and Labor and the Liberal-Nationals Coalition were a disappointment.

“Each scored a total of 44 out of a possible 100, but varied in their responses to different questions,” he said.

“The scores reflect the degree to which the parties support our concerns, so a score of 44 indicates ‘not much'. The Greens scored even less – 25 – because they strongly disagreed with us on every issue except phasing out poker machines.

“However in both major parties, there are individual candidates who generally support family values.”
