Parliament will not investigate the Opposition Leader’s claims of police intimidation outside a Gold Coast community cabinet event.

Annastacia Palaszczuk asked parliamentary Speaker Fiona Simpson to review her complaint last month, claiming that the filming of herself and the Labor Member for Bundamba speaking to residents outside the government event amounted to police intimidation.

Speaking in parliament last month, Ms Palaszczuk said “one effect of such conduct can be dissuade people from talking in public with members of parliament, thus interfering with MPs freely performing their duties”.

At the time, Queensland Police Union president Ian Leavers called Ms Palaszczuk’s allegation “a disgrace”.

‘‘And this is a textbook play from the old former Bligh Government ‘anti-police’ handbook,’’ he said.

‘‘It must really be 1 April for Annastacia Palaszczuk is truly the April Fool.’’

‘‘Police would think she was joking as it’s the 1st of April if it wasn’t so serious

Ms Simpson said in reviewing the matter she wrote to Police Commissioner Ian Stewart who responded it had "long been routine operational practice for the QPS to film such public events and supports the policing of the event in the case of an offence or allegations against police”.

Ms Simpson said she had been given footage of the incident, which she was told had not be altered or edited.

“The footage has been viewed by my office and it supports the statement made by the Commissioner that at no time were any members of the Leader of the Opposition's group targeted through filming and that the footage does not appear to contain any images of the Leader of the Opposition nor record her conversations or the conversations of the Member for Bundamba,” Ms Simpson said.

“The Commissioner’s letter acknowledges the concern that may have arisen for the Leader of the Opposition and the Member for Bundamba by the perception that they were being recorded. The QPS, through the Commissioner, sincerely regrets any concerns in this regard.

“I do not intend to refer the matter to the Ethics Committee.”

The matter is now closed.
