Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 2008 Week 09 Hansard (Wednesday, 20 August 2008) . . Page.. 3330 ..
We have said that that is the least a government can do to ensure that the people of west Belconnen who are so disadvantaged in many ways in terms of the delivery of health services can get the kind of health services that they need. The people of west Belconnen under our policy will also have access to after-hours GPs. These will not cost them. There will be no out-of-pocket expenses for people accessing these after-hours services.
Likewise, the people of south Tuggeranong have been promised so much by this government and have had so little delivered to them. They have had so little delivered to them. We have a plan to ensure that the people of south Tuggeranong, who are particularly geographically isolated from our hospitals, who are the most isolated in terms of access to hospitals in the ACT, will have access to after-hours GP clinics in their area where they need it. Of course, we turn to the people of Gungahlin—
Mr Stanhope: Are you telling us they are going to be bulk-billed?
MR SESELJA: who in so many ways have been let down by this government. Whether it is the issue of one-lane roads—
Mr Stanhope: Swimming pool?
MR SESELJA: whether it is the phantom swimming pool—
Mr Stanhope: No swimming pool?
MR SPEAKER: Order!
MR SESELJA: Whether it is the phantom swimming pool that the Chief Minister talks about—
Mr Stanhope: Point of order, Mr Speaker.
MR SPEAKER: I call Mr Stanhope on a point of order. What is the point of order?
Mr Stanhope: Mr Speaker, the claim by the Leader of the Opposition now that the Labor Party is not fully committed to a swimming pool in Gungahlin is—
MR SPEAKER: Order! That is a debating point. Resume your seat.
Mr Stanhope: The claim is simply false, Mr Speaker.
MR SPEAKER: That is a debating point. Resume your seat.
Mr Stanhope: Well, the claim is false.
MR SESELJA: It is a debating point and it is a very poor debating point, too.
MR SPEAKER: Order! Resume your seat. Cease interjecting.
