Hospital Redevelopment Project : Public Hospital Beds

MR BERRY: Earlier Mr Collaery asked a question regarding the functional plan for the hospital redevelopment project. I have not seen the functional plan, but I will see it in due course. When I do see it, I will make some decisions about what will happen to it in the future. I can give no more advice in that respect. However, I should say that the functional plan that Mr Collaery is talking about is a functional plan that was the subject of some controversy during the term of the Alliance Government and I never once heard Mr Collaery calling for it then. It is a matter which he has left for Labor to deal with, and we will deal with it most appropriately.

On projected hospital bed numbers: The number of 1,250, I think, was mentioned by Mr Collaery. That is one of a range of projections which I have heard of. There are ongoing evaluations about those sorts of figures at both national and local levels. I think that answers the question, Mr Speaker.

MR CONNOLLY (Attorney-General, Minister for Housing and Community Services and Minister for Urban Services): For the information of members, I table the ACT Electricity and Water annual report 1990-91, pursuant to section 79A of the Electricity and Water Act 1988, and the Department of Justice and Community Services annual report 1990-91, together with annual reports from the Community Law Reform Committee, the Children's Services Council, the Parole Board of the ACT, the administration of the Credit Act, the administration of the Sale of Motor Vehicles Act, the Bookmakers Licensing Committee and the Racecourse Development Fund.
