Supplementary answers to questions without notice


Canberra Hospital—asbestos

MS FITZHARRIS, by leave: With regard to questions from you, Madam Assistant Speaker Lee, and others seeking clarification on the hydrotherapy pool, I did make that clarification, through the Speaker, in October, in the last sitting period. The Speaker tabled the letter that I sent to her, so that clarification has been made.

Regarding asbestos, I was advised about asbestos removal works in July 2017 in ward 11A, which was being refurbished at the time. There is asbestos known to be in the Canberra Hospital campus, and this has been appropriately managed, in line with relevant workplace safety regulations and proceedings, codes of practice, and guidelines. Asbestos removal is a common activity in major refurbishment works.


Ms Fitzharris presented the following papers:

Health Practitioner Regulation National Law—Health Practitioner Regulation National Law Regulation 2018 (No 166/2018), dated 12 October 2018, together with a general outline.
