THE Queensland premier has promised a gun amnesty and more paramedics and ambulances for the state by July.
Premier Campbell Newman today announced his action plan for the first half of the year.
He promised $18.4 million for 130 new and replacement ambulances, and an extra 60 ambulance officers.
He also promised to enact an amnesty for Queenslanders who have illegal or unregistered firearms.
The premier also pledged to implement a new subsidised patient travel scheme and establish a previously announced commission aimed at improving mental health services in Queensland.
Mr Newman said his six-month action plan outlined 148 priorities to boost jobs and the economy, make the community safer, and increase government accountability.
Community Safety Minister Jack Dempsey said the Queensland Ambulance Service would receive a significant boost.
He said the 60 new officers would be spread throughout the state.
"The officers will be supported by state-of-the-art equipment with 130 new (and replacement) ambulances to be delivered to ambulance stations across Queensland," he said in a statement.
