Vote on Calvary Acquisition This Morning


The Canberra Liberals will vote against the government’s bill in the assembly this morning, that will enable the government to forcibly acquire Calvary Hospital Bruce.

The opposition has been critical of the proposal since it was announced more than two weeks ago, citing a lack of consultation and ideology among the issues.

Acting leader Jeremy Hanson says no amendments would fix what the Liberal’s say is a flawed bill.

The ACT Health Minister claims the government’s bill to begin the acquisition of Calvary Hospital in Bruce can withstand legal challenges.

Calvary has announced it will mount a legal challenge over the government’s proposal unless debate on the legislation is adjourned.

Rachel-Stephen Smith says the bill ticks all the boxes legally and to benefit the Territory’s health system long-term.
