TOWNSVILLE nightclub operators are furious with the State Government’s plans for a 1am lockout, demanding to meet Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk before she “shuts down” their businesses.

Industry heavyweights say the proposal for 1am lockouts and 3am bar closures would cripple their industry and they want to meet Ms Palaszczuk while she is in Townsville today.

Brothers Leagues Club CEO Justin Wilkins said the club, which closes at 2am, would suffer with a 1am lockout.

“People will vacate our premises a lot quicker to get to others before the 1am lockout and we would definitely have to lose staff,” he said.

“It’s not going to solve anything and it will make people feel trapped and frustrated when they can’t get in somewhere and see their friends.
