Page.. 1802..


MADAM SPEAKER: A supplementary question, Ms Lawder.

MS LAWDER: Minister, how many day bed spaces are you counting for a swimming pool or hydrotherapy pool?

MR CORBELL: The functional brief for the University of Canberra hospital has been very clear for the last two years.

Mr Hanson interjecting

MADAM SPEAKER: The Leader of the Opposition, I call you to order.

MR CORBELL: It was clear 12 months ago, when the service delivery model was released for public consultation. A year ago, the government released for public comment the service delivery framework, which outlined that there would be 140 overnight beds and 75 day spaces or day beds. We released, two years ago, advice from the then Minister for Health that confirmed a similar mix of overnight and day beds and day spaces. There is no difference in the government's position today compared to the government's position a year ago, or compared to the government's position a year before that. This facility delivers 250 spaces for treatment—

Mr Smyth: 250?

MR CORBELL: I beg your pardon—215 spaces for treatment.

Members interjecting

MADAM SPEAKER: Order, members!

Mr Hanson interjecting

Mr Coe interjecting

MADAM SPEAKER: The Leader of the Opposition! Mr Coe! When I call members to order, I expect some appropriate response, not a continuation of the noise. A supplementary question, Mr Hanson.

MR HANSON: Minister, how many day bed spaces are you counting for an exercise bike in the gym?

MR CORBELL: This government is focused on delivering to people the care that they need. It is about focusing on making sure we have the right capacity to give people the care they need. Those opposite might think it is funny to laugh at whether people can get good access to a hydrotherapy pool, but we do not think so.

Mr Hanson: A point of order.

MADAM SPEAKER: Stop the clock, please.
