Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 2015 Week 4 Hansard (24 March) . .
MADAM SPEAKER: A supplementary question, Mr Coe.
MR COE: Minister, does the current master plan for the Canberra Hospital campus include provision for a new hospital tower block?
MR CORBELL: I am not familiar with all of the detail immediately to hand in relation to the master plan. However, members would be aware that the government has already indicated its intention to proceed with the development of a new tower block at the Canberra Hospital. As to whether or not that is reflected in a document prepared approximately three or four years ago, I will need to clarify that and provide further information to the member.
MADAM SPEAKER: A supplementary question, Mr Hanson.
MR HANSON: Minister, when will the updated concept master plan for the Canberra Hospital be released to the public?
MR CORBELL: The advice I have from Health is that work on the renewal of the master plan will take place later this year and there will be opportunities for public comment as part of that process.
MR HANSON: Will you provide the Assembly with a copy of the existing master plan and make a commitment to table the updated master plan as soon as it is finalised?
MR CORBELL: It is always the government's intention for these documents to be public documents.
Education—Canberra College Cares program
MS PORTER: My question is to the Minister for Education and Training. Minister, the new CCCares facility recently opened at Canberra College in Woden. Can you inform the Assembly about this new facility and how it will benefit the students of CCCares?
MS BURCH: I thank Ms Porter for her question on CCCares and recognise that she was at the formal opening of the centre. Indeed it is a very great centre for these young parents. I was very pleased to be able to open that. It is a great facility on the Canberra College campus. I would like to take this opportunity to thank the staff and students of Canberra College and CCCares for hosting the event and for really showcasing the great work that CCCares does. I wish the students at CCCares all the best for their future studies. The completion of this project means that the community has another great education facility, but I think it is even more significant, given the students and the challenges they have faced in their young years.
