Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 1999 Week 12 Hansard (24 November) . . Page.. 3662 ..
MR MOORE (continuing):
A major increase in staff will be considered in the 2000-2001 Budget. The Government also considers that a further review of staffing levels would be useful 12 months after the implementation of the proposed staff increases.
Measures that require additional funding will be examined in the 2000-2001 Budget context. Other issues such as improved consultation, the formation of an Inter-agency child and adolescent mental health forum and medical definitions are supported by the Government and can be implemented by ACTMHS with no budgetary impact.
As I am sure Members will agree, child and adolescent mental health is a crucial part of our health system.
I commend the Government Response to the Assembly.
Debate (on motion by Ms Tucker) adjourned.
