Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 2012 Week 8 Hansard (22 August) . . Page.. 3212..

MR HARGREAVES: I certainly will, Madam Deputy Speaker. I observed that, in fact, in the entire time the Leader of the Opposition was on his feet he did not mention Weston, let alone north Weston.

However, Mr Smyth talked about how wonderful his government was in identifying the sheep dips. He did not identify all of the sheep dips. He only identified some of them, and he knows that only too well. Here we have got this smoke and mirrors thing: "I identified all of the sheep dips around town."Well, he did not. There is a whole stack of undiscovered sheep dips around this territory. People are going to find out when they dig into their backyard or go and do some redevelopment and take a couple of houses out that they are right on top of a sheep dip. Nobody knows where they are because the list that this guy oversaw is incomplete.

The message from those guys over there is that you cannot trust this government. What you can trust this government about is the fact that you have got a forest of cranes over this city. You have got the largest amount of development in the city in the history of the ACT. You have got the largest amount of investment in infrastructure in the private sector and the public sector in this city since self-government and further back beyond that. Madam Deputy Speaker, you can trust this government to deliver and you can trust this government to deliver jobs for our kids. You cannot trust those opposite to do any of that.

Question resolved in the affirmative.

Report 29

MS LE COUTEUR (Molonglo) (4.23): I present the following report:

Report 29—Review of Auditor-General's Report No. 6 of 2012: Emergency Department Performance Information—August 2012—Interim Report, dated 13 August 2012, together with the transmittal letter and a copy of the extracts of the relevant minutes of proceedings.

I move:

That the report be noted.

For the information of members, this is the last PAC report for today, although there will be some more on Thursday and Friday. So stay tuned for the next thrilling instalment. The other thing I need to mention, of course, is that this report was circulated to members when the Assembly was not sitting. That was because of the considerable public interest in the contents and it was felt that it was better to circulate the report as soon as we could.

That probably leads me to recommendation 16, which is:

The Committee recommends that the 8th ACT Legislative Assembly Standing Committee on Public Accounts should give due consideration to conducting an inquiry into the process of future delivery of health care services across the Canberra Hospital and Calvary Public Hospital.
