Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 2011 Week 12 Hansard (Wednesday, 26 October 2011) . . Page.. 4975 ..


With regard to Ms Bresnan’s assertion regarding item (c), I draw her attention to the statistics on the notice paper, which correct her assertion regarding those numbers. I thank her for her amendment. I note that the proposed review of lymphoedema services is already underway and I congratulate the government on its initiative.

The community response to breast cancer through pink ribbon month is to be applauded. Each of us has the opportunity to support our neighbours, family and workplace through fundraising and spreading awareness.

I commend the motion to the Assembly.

Ms Bresnan’s amendment agreed to.
