Mr HALE (6:13 PM) —Health in this country, for all Australians, no matter where they live, should be a given, whether it is preventative or curative health. Obviously, in my seat of Solomon we live in a more remote part of Australia. I thought in the budget for 2009-10 we were the big winners. We did quite well in my electorate. I would like to acknowledge the Minister for Health and Ageing and her continuing support of my electorate. My question is: can the minister provide some details on how my electorate of Solomon will benefit from the Health and Hospital Fund investment and how my community will benefit from changes the government has made to rural and remote workforce packages?
