One Australian state government is set to establish the country’s first permanent disaster recovery agency.

    we need to have more people insuring, the government needs to make your personal house / contents insurance tax deductable, this will help the drain on government money in a disaster, the insurers will have more money, the premiums we be kept reasonable. Secondly in a disaster people who choose not to insure should not get 100% of their loss, this encourages people not to insure.

    We also need to make sure our clients are not underinsured. There is not much incentive to increase sums insured when it adds so much more expense to a business bottom line. It would assist if State Governments took the Stamp Duty off all insurance. Why add additional costs to consumers when you are trying to encourage them to protect themselves more adequately?

    Well done new Queensland Government. Visionary and Strategic and a must for Queensland into the future.

    Climate change (even without said human intervention) is happening as it has in the past
    and Queensland is highly exposed to natures events and will continue to be so.

    Ostrichentitus is a fools disease.

    Congratulations !
