Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 2002 Week 14 Hansard (11 December) . . Page.. 4294..


MR SMYTH (continuing):

I have to say the option was there, right up front, to do it yourself if you did not like what I had done. It is a shame that the minister's inability to read a motion means that he is going to be dragged kicking and screaming by this Assembly to put some targets into his action plan. It is a shame the minister did not read the motion properly.

I would urge members to make the action plan a plan of real action by passing my motion. It will not be a burden on the budget, it will not cause the end of the world, but it will improve health outcomes.
