Personal explanation

MS STEPHEN-SMITH (Kurrajong—Minister for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Affairs, Minister for Families and Community Services and Minister for Health) (4.12): I believe that I may have indicated in question time that the ACT had not been charging people for tests, but for the certificate that was required for those who were getting tested in order to support travel arrangements. It is clear from the information that I provided after question time that the $112.40 charge included $50 for the testing, based on the relevant MBS item. I just wanted to formally correct the record to ensure that I brought those things together. I can also advise the Assembly that ACT Pathology will be reversing all invoices for testing for domestic travel and issuing refunds to those who have already paid, and that that process is now underway.
