“Thanks very much Michael. Look forward to staying in touch as the

Clinical Services Plan & associated capital needs are developed.”

Result – 30/187

improvement in May 2019

Mrs Ann Sudmalis, Member for Gilmore

Did not submit answer

Result – 0/187

Comment – Not interested, not continuing in 2019

Dr Mike Kelly, Member for Eden-Monaro

“Federal Labor will consider the capital requirements of the new hospital

once the NSW Government has completed the Clinical Services Plan”

Result – 10/187

Comment – Disappointing result, has not tried hard this term unlike his

Bega project. Can improve by May 2019.

Dr Fiona Kotvojs, Liberal candidate for Eden-Monaro

“As you would be aware, the final cost for any construction will not be

known until the site is identified and the plans for that specific site

developed and Government takes the plans to market. At that time, the

NSW State Government will know whether additional funds are required

and whether a request will be put to the Federal Government. Until that is determined, it would not be appropriate to make any

commitment about funding required.”

Result – 10/187

Comment – Lack of imagination. Suspected copied answer from textbook

Ms Fiona Phillips, ALP candidate for Gilmore

Did not submit answer

Result – 0/187

Comment – Repeat next year. Yours, ONE- One New Eurobodalla hospital
