Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk has ruled out giving Queenslanders a say on daylight saving in the upcoming referendum into four year terms.
The state government announced last week that Queenslanders would be asked to vote yes or no on four year terms for state MPs in a referendum to be held during the upcoming council elections.
On Sunday, Ms Palaszczuk said she would not be extending the vote to include questions on daylight saving.
"There is no possibility of having that question put in the referendum," she said.
"The writ has been signed and goes to the governor on Monday."
Neither side of the political debate support a move to daylight saving but people in south-east Queensland tend to lean towards it in opinion polls.
Ms Palaszczuk said her position had not changed.
"People have different views on this issue, right across the state," she said.
"I have made it very clear in relation to the issue of daylight saving I'm about uniting Queensland not dividing Queensland."
Speaker Peter Wellington introduced a private member's bill for daylight saving in 2009 for a dual time zone arrangement in Queensland.
Then premier Anna Bligh commissioned a community consultation process which found that 64 per cent of the 74,000 people surveyed supported a trial but the bill was defeated in parliament after Ms Bligh said her government would not support it.
