Health Care Bill

28 Feb 2008 archivespeech

This speech indicates that the Liberal Party support the Health Care bill.

The Hon. J.M.A. LENSINK: The Liberal Party also supports this amendment; however, I want to ask a question of the minister about how often it is envisaged that the minister will meet with this group per annum

The Hon. J.M.A. LENSINK: The Liberal Party supports this amendment, but we note that the HACs will not have very much to do with the minister at all. Amendment carried; clause as amended passed. Clauses 18 to 57 passed. Clause 58.

The Hon. J.M.A. LENSINK: This is a reasonable clause to include. However, our concerns remain with the new governance arrangements, which we believe take the country out of the hospitals. New clause inserted. Schedules 1 to 4 passed. Bill reported with amendments.
