Dr Bob Woods Shadow Minister for Health no: 14 WHEN WILL YOU GET IT RIGHT MR HOWE?

Federal Health Minister Brian Howe has again resorted to mistruths and misrepresentations about Coalition Health Policy in a desperate bid to detract from the crisis in Australia's health care Federal Shadow Minister for Health Dr Bob Woods said this afternoon.

The Coalition Government will actually increase funding for breast cancer screening and mobile densitometry units by $ 8 million - ie our funding is additional to current expenditure. We will continue to fund women's health centres.

Our ongoing commitment to women's health is well known.

To say anything else is completely incorrect and should be treated, like many of Mr Howe's comments, with the contempt it deserves. "
