QUEENSLAND Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk says services could face cuts if her state loses its GST share to Western Australia.

Ms Palaszczuk is adamant national partnership agreements, which guarantee health and education funding, should continue.

The federal government is considering a new carve-up of the GST at COAG this week favouring WA, which has seen a dramatic downturn in revenue, at the expense of other states.

The premier says Queensland could face cuts of up to $500 million to services, and it’s up to every federal politician from the state to support her stance.

“The reality is if that money does not flow on to Queensland, I believe that services will suffer,” she said.
