Tweed Hospital

(Question No. 44)


Mrs Elliot asked the Minister representing the Minister for Regional Development, in writing, on 20 October 2016:

In respect of a media report 'Where's your pledge?' by Alina Rylko (Tweed Daily News , 27 June 2016) that after the Minister for Regional Development's visit to the Tweed Hospital during the election campaign, the Minister was uncertain as to what sum of funding was required for the hospital, but expected a figure to be finalised in the coming months: has a funding amount yet been determined; if so, (a) what sum, (b) from which program will it come, and (c) when will it be allocated; if not, when will the funding amount be determined


Mr Chester: The Minister for Regional Development has provided the following answer to the honourable Member's question:

(a) (b) (c) The article to which the honourable Member refers quotes the Nationals candidate for Richmond, Matthew Fraser, rather than the Minister for Regional Development. Issues relating to hospital infrastructure funding fall within the responsibility of the Minister for Health, as well as state and territory governments.
