The Honourable Anna Bligh
PREMIER PLEDGE ON APPEAL FUND RECIPIENTS
Premier Anna Bligh has pledged that people who have won a victory over their insurers will not have to repay any grants they received from the Premier's Disaster Relief Appeal.
"These people have suffered enough and I will not be asking them to repay money they received from the Appeal," Ms Bligh said.
"The donors who gave so generously to the Appeal wanted the money to go to people who really needed it the most - and it has.
"It has gone to people whose homes were completely destroyed or severely damaged in the natural disasters that befell our State over summer.
"The Appeal was set up to help people rebuild their lives and that's what we want to see it do.
"This money is vital for so many Queenslanders.
"I won't be asking them to return it and I make no apology for that."
