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.
That Ms Gallagher's amendment be agreed to.
The Assembly voted—
Question so resolved in the affirmative.
Motion, as amended, agreed to.
