Possible referendum to decide increasing parliamentary terms

QUEENSLANDERS could be asked to vote in a referendum on whether to increase parliamentary terms from three years to four.

Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk told State Parliament on Tuesday she would ask the Finance and Administration Committee to conduct an inquiry into the possible introduction of four-year terms.

She said the committee would be asked to determine when and how a referendum question might be put to the Queensland people.

"The length of parliamentary terms in Queensland has long been a subject of debate," she said.

"It is something our business community require certainty about and indeed it is something all Queenslanders require certainty about."

The LNP has previously said they would support the introduction of four-year terms.

The committee is due to report back before November 9.
