La­bor re­spon­si­bil­ity to re­store hos­pi­tal

Mt Druitt - St Mary's Standard (East) - - FEEDBACK -

IN RE­SPONSE to “Queen has ‘re­spon­si­bil­ity’ ” ( The Stan­dard, Jan­uary 20), Bill Arm­strong would well re­mem­ber that it was a fairdinkum La­bor govern­ment which, un­der Neville Wran as premier, brought Mt Druitt Hos­pi­tal to the area in 1982. It was also a La­bor govern­ment un­der Carr and Iemma which ripped emer­gency surgery from Mt Druitt Hos­pi­tal.

Any new La­bor govern­ment has a “re­spon­si­bil­ity” to re­turn that and more to the hos­pi­tal, eg a men­tal health unit.

Maybe Bill should ap­proach La­bor state leader Luke Fo­ley re­quest­ing a pledge to fully re­store Mt Druitt Hos­pi­tal if elected.

Know­ing Mr Fo­ley’s plan to sell off so­cial hous­ing as part of a rightwing agenda, I don’t like Bill’s chances of suc­cess.
