DESPITE being the LNP's key re-election policy, Queensland Premier Campbell Newman this morning said the government would not lease assets if they did not get "full value".

Speaking in Rockhampton this morning Mr Newman said the LNP's plans to lease electricity and port assets would only take place if the government got top dollar for them.

Mr Newman said, if needed, he would follow the NSW government who have reportedly taken their power stations off the market.

"We will ensure we get the proper value for any asset," he said.

"We would retain assets if we weren't getting full value."

When asked what this would mean for the LNP's proposed infrastructure fund - which asset leasing will pay for - Mr Newman said he was confident the market was there for the assets.
