Queensland opposition leader Deb Frecklington and two other LNP ministers have apologised for saying Deputy Premier Jackie Trad ignored corruption allegations against Ipswich City Council.

Ms Frecklington, her deputy Tim Mander, and education spokesman Jarrod Bleijie accused Ms Trad of ignoring 326 complaints when she was local government minister between 2015 and 2017.

Ms Trad said the figure referred to the number of pages in a document relating to just three accusations, which were referred to the Crime and Corruption Commission.

The three MPs apologised minutes before parliament adjourned last night.

Ms Trad will write to Speaker Curtis Pitt asking him to refer the Liberal National MPs to the ethics committee for misleading parliament.
