Nanango MP Deb Frecklington is pushing the Government to make swimming lessons free for our kids.

She says that some families in the community are unable to afford the lessons, which leaves children at risk of drowning.

The Government says this is something they are looking into with Sports Minister Mick De Brenni indicating they are leaning towards developing a voucher system.

Mrs Frecklington says this is something the government can be addressing right now, promising to fund compulsory swimming lessons in all Queensland primary schools to ensure the lives of our school kids are not put at risk.
