The Liberal’s Jeremy Hanson is making some big claims about his opposite number Katy Gallagher’s work ethic:
- “Yesterday Ms Gallagher failed to attend an ACT Health Organ and Tissue Donation Seminar despite being listed as the keynote speaker. Instead she was out in her tracksuit for an afternoon walk.
“ACT Health staff were clearly embarrassed and had no explanation for her failure to attend the seminar. The Acting ACT Chief Health Officer was forced to make up excuses for her absence.
“On the way to the seminar I was astounded to see her dressed in a tracksuit laughing and joking as she headed for a walk with some of her staff.
“This is further evidence that she is unable to balance her Treasury and Health portfolios, as well as her recreational activities.
Personally given a choice between going for a walk yesterday or attending a Health Organ and Tissue Donation Seminar I think I’d choose the sunshine. On the other hand I’m not the Minister for Health and don’t much want to be.
