Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 2005 Week 10 Hansard (Tuesday, 23 August 2005 2005) . . Page.. 3054 ..
The Liberal Party has a contradictory position. They think there is some sort of problem with this. They think there is some sort of difficulty in getting a radiologist from interstate to read the screen. The radiologist is qualified, Mr Smyth, and is recognised by the professional college as competent to read the screen. The radiologist is prepared to provide the service, and that means that the woman gets the results of her screen in a timely way. What is the problem with that? There is no problem with that. The only problem we have, Mr Speaker, is a Liberal Party that criticises for the sake of criticism.
