Ms Sandra Lambert
MS GALLAGHER (Molonglo—Deputy Chief Minister, Treasurer, Minister for Health and Minister for Industrial Relations) (6.07): I would like to speak on a couple of matters tonight. The first one is that it is with great sadness that we have been advised today of the death of Dr Brian Hennessy. Members may know that Dr Hennessy was the director of psychiatry in the ACT in the 1960s through to 1974. He developed a major plan for psychiatric services for the Australian Capital Territory in 1969 and then in a more extensive manner in 1972.
