Mr Michael Hays

MR MOORE (Minister for Health and Community Care) (6.16): Mr Speaker, I have a good news story for the end of this sitting. Members would remember some debate over an AFP police officer, Michael Hays, who was injured in the line of duty when he broke his back in a fall from a cherry picker in 1997. I have been informed that he was discharged from the hospital in the last couple of days and has moved to a Multiple Sclerosis Society house in Deakin. His family will move in with him by the end of this week. I further understand that Comcare have reviewed his current family home and have determined that it needs to be demolished and rebuilt so that it will be suitable for him. They are also assisting him with special equipment that he requires, and driver retraining and car modification. So, things are beginning to look up in that case.
