HEALTH CARE (GOVERNANCE) AMENDMENT BILL

Mr PEDERICK (Hammond) (17:14): I rise to make a contribution in relation to the Health Care (Governance) Amendment Bill 2020. The background of this bill has a long history. It is the second stage of the Marshall Liberal government's commitment to decentralise decision-making in the public health system through the establishment of metropolitan and regional governing boards. The Health Care (Governance) Amendment Bill 2019 lapsed by prorogation on 19 December 2019 before it could be passed to implement the second stage of the government's commitment to decentralise decision-making in the public health system.

SUPPLY BILL 2021

Mr PEDERICK (Hammond) (20:19): I rise to make a few comments in regard to the Supply Bill 2021 and note that the amount of money we are authorising so we can write the cheques for the Public Service and others is $6,161,000,000. That gives assent for enough finance to get us through until we have the Appropriation Bill debate and all the debate around it. We have based this figure on the actual appropriations that were required for the first four months of the 2020-21 financial year. The passage of the bill is essential to enable the operations of government to be paid for the period 1 July 2021 until the Appropriation Bill is approved.
