Questions without Notice
My question is to the health minister. Minister, another aspect of the government's miserable budget is an investigation into the sell-off of Australian Hearing. This greatly concerns the clients of the Australian government Hearing Services Program—for example, the hundreds of deaf and hearing-impaired children in Tasmania. Minister, what reassurance can you give those people that there will be no sell-off or, if there is, that there will be no adverse effect on the delivery, scope and cost of services?
