In extraordinary comments from the Health Minister of the ACT, the new Chief Minister, Katy Gallagher, has labelled smoking as a greater health problem than the use or prevalence of illicit drugs in the prison, Shadow Health Minister Jeremy Hanson said today.
This morning Katy Gallagher told the Health Estimates committee hearing;
‘I should say that out of the Burnet report and there is a lot of interest around illicit drugs.
