I will move that this House:

(1) Notes that a Labor Government will commit $225 million over the next three years to expand and upgrade Canterbury Hospital, including a new maternity department and mental health beds.

(2) Acknowledges Canterbury Hospital has languished under the neglect of successive Liberal and National Governments, forcing 60 senior doctors to pen an open letter decrying services at the Hospital.

(3) Thanks the countless residents, health-care workers and volunteers who have fought for so long for an upgrade at Canterbury Hospital, and notes the Opposition stands with them.
