Can Miller survive a week of grilling from Opposition?

GET ready for a week of Jo-Ann Miller.

That is Opposition Leader Lawrence Springborg's message before as the final parliamentary sitting week of the year begins.

Speaking at Parliament House in Brisbane on Monday Mr Springborg said Jo-Ann Miller was "making a spectacle of herself and also the government" and the Opposition would target her.

"What we're seeing here is a government which is completely frozen by inaction.

"A Premier who is unable to take the necessary action that she should take as Premier against an underperforming minister - one who has been very, very embarrassing for this government," he said.

"For the Opposition this week our focus is going to be very much on Jo-Ann Miller.

"On the fact that this Premier is unable to take the action that Queenslanders are demanding the Premier to take against Jo-Ann Miller."

In a statement Ms Miller said she was concentrating on the extended parliamentary week.

"It's going to be a busy week in parliament and I'm focused on getting good outcomes for the people of Queensland.

"That's my priority," she said.

As the QT revealed on Monday, a Parliamentary Ethics Committee's report on Ms Miller signing a statutory declaration affirming she had shredded documents which Warrego MP Ann Leahy later found may be tabled in parliament this week.

Speaking to reporters in Brisbane on Monday Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk said she would be talking to all her ministers about their performance after this sitting week.

"After this week of parliament, I will be sitting down with each of my ministers and discussing with them their workloads and everything that's happened over the past nine months," she said.

Ms Palaszczuk did not say if the report would influence her decision on Ms Miller's future.

The Bundamba MP and Police Minister has courted controversy throughout the past year - along with being referred to the Ethics Committee.

Ms Miller was accused of making a "throat-slitting gesture" towards Opposition MP Tarnya Smith, rang a man who accused a fellow Labor MP of forgery and harassment, and also became involved in a heated public argument with Ipswich Mayor Paul Pisasale.
