Mr Greg Cornwell MLA
ACT Legislative Assembly
CANBERRA ACT 2600
Thank you for your letter enclosing the petition lodged by Mr Wayne Berry MLA on 22 November 1995 concerning the services and sale of Kippax Health Centre.
I can assure you and the members of the Assembly that this Government has no intention of reducing the availability of community based services. Health care centres have an important role in the delivery of these services but a range of venues will need to be utilised if we are to meet the challenges of the 90's.
