Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 2010 Week 8 Hansard (17 August) . . Page.. 3358..

MR SESELJA (continuing):

We cannot maintain confidence given such a long list of abject failures. We must express our dissatisfaction in the strongest terms and we express no confidence in this minister.

MS GALLAGHER (Molonglo—Deputy Chief Minister, Treasurer, Minister for Health and Minister for Industrial Relations): Can I seek leave now to make a personal explanation?

MADAM DEPUTY SPEAKER: Leave is granted.

MS GALLAGHER: A number of speakers from the opposition have alleged that it was only Mr Hanson's bringing a motion to the Assembly that resulted in the reviews being commissioned. I reviewed the Hansard and in my speech in the Hansard I referred to a review that I was commissioning around clinical standards. Indeed, I wrote to the Chief Executive of ACT Health three days before, on Sunday, 21 February, seeking a review into clinical standards in the obstetric unit. The imputation is that I was forced, kicking and screaming, to commission a review into clinical standards only because Mr Hanson brought a motion to the Assembly. That is simply incorrect.

Question put:

That Mr Seselja's motion be agreed to.
