Trade deal could cost my seat

Asked if the deal could cost the MP her seat, Mrs Kelly said: 'It well could.'

Mrs Kelly is one of a number of coalition MPs in the so-called Queensland sugar seats who will be under pressure due to the government decision to agree to keeping sugar out of the deal.

The shape of the federal election is starting to show, and losing sugar seats in North Queensland looks like one of them.
