Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 2007 Week 8 Hansard (29 August) . . Page.. 2312..

MRS BURKE (continuing):

available for nurses on wards, we have a problem. My reference to a Third World hospital or Third World health system was because we should expect better here. That was my point.

I will continue to watch and monitor. I will continue to make public where I have to, where I feel the need to. I will not back away or resile from what I have done. I stand by everything I have said in an effort to support the nurses on the front line and our health professionals right across the health system. I ask the house to support my motion. I will finish on that note. I just ask that members of this house look at what I have said—look at it seriously and support my motion today.

Question put:
