Legislative Assembly for the ACT: Week 6 Hansard (24 June) . . Page.. 2611..


MR STANHOPE (continuing):

This minister has absolutely nothing to consider resigning about. That is a joke. This minister can hold his head up with pride for the rest of his professional life on the basis of what he's already achieved in just over 21/2 years as the most farsighted and energetic Minister for Planning this jurisdiction has ever had and, I believe, will ever have. He has produced a visionary plan for the future of the city and is a dedicated, diligent, understanding and intelligent Minister for Health. He has striven to provide the best possible health service for this community.

We're standing here today, on the basis of his record and the record of this government, seriously discussing whether this Minister for Planning and Minister for Health should be asked to resign. This is just laughably stupid. It is absolutely stupid in the context of governments, the responsibility of ministers and what this minister has achieved. I can't believe, seriously, that we're debating this. That's how absurd this is. It is absolutely stupid.

Debate (on motion by Ms Tucker ) adjourned to a later hour.
