Mr GALVIN (KINGSTON, SOUTH AUSTRALIA) - Will the Minister for Repatriation visit the Springbank Repatriation General Hospital in South Australia when the first opportunity to do so arises? Is the Minister aware that over five years ago the former Minister for Repatriation agreed that the old temporary prefabricated building used as a psychiatric ward was not suitable for this purpose and that it was out of keeping with the other up-to-date facilities of the hospital?

Further, the construction of a new block was considered to have a number one priority by the former Minister, but the project could not be included in last year's estimates because of lack of money. Will the Minister inspect this block with a view to having provision for a new building included in next year's estimates?
