Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 1997 Week 8 Hansard (27 August) . . Page.. 2510..
MR BERRY: My question is to the Chief Minister in her capacity as Health Minister. Mr Speaker, in 1994, Mrs Carnell said in this Assembly - - -
Mrs Carnell: Was that the year you blew out your budget? Yes, it was.
MR BERRY: She said this with passion.
MR SPEAKER: Order!
MR BERRY: She said this:
The siting of a hospice on Acton Peninsula is just a patently silly decision; but then we all know that, except Mr Berry. It is the wrong decision for those needing the service, the wrong financial decision and the wrong use of Acton Peninsula.
My, how a lot disagree with her these days. Will the Chief Minister unequivocally assure the Assembly and the community that the hospice will return to the Acton Peninsula?
MRS CARNELL: Yes.
MR SPEAKER: Do you have a supplementary question, Mr Berry?
MR BERRY: Yes, indeed. When will the return to Acton take place?
MRS CARNELL: Probably early next week, Mr Speaker.
MRS LITTLEWOOD: My question is for the Attorney-General. I have been very disturbed by reports of electoral inconsistencies following the 1996 elections of the ANU Students Association. What actions have you taken in response to these claims, and can you assure the Assembly that future Students Association elections are free from any hint of electoral fraud?
Mr Moore: And where did you get your training?
MR HUMPHRIES: To answer Mr Moore's question first, I have to say that student politics are a very good training ground for politics, but hopefully not of the kind that has been going on, apparently, at the ANU Students Association in the last little while.
