This must be the classic on-again-off-again romance.
The ACT Government has decided it does not need to buy Calvary Hospital now. Apparantly Katy has realised what the community has been telling her all along: that $77 million is a lot of money to buy something you already own.
Accounting standards have now changed, and ACT Government expenditure can now go into a different column in the balance sheet. Therefore there is no need to buy something the government already owns.
The ABC report is online.
I can’t find any ministerial press release, though.
