Calvary Acquisition Passes Assembly


The Legislative Assembly has passed the bill to allow the compulsory acquisition of Calvary Public Hospital in Bruce to take place.

The bill was strongly opposed by the Canberra Liberals – with Acting Opposition Leader Jeremy Hanson labelling it as “undemocratic” and “deceitful” during yesterday’s debate.

However, ACT Chief Minister Andrew Barr said the legislation is a “necessary.”

The bill will allow the government to take over Bruce hospital from July 3rd, but it will face a legal challenge with Calvary.
