Springborg and Miller in argument over cuts to health

HEALTH Minister Lawrence Springborg and Bundamba MP Jo-Ann Miller continued their scrap over funding cuts to health services in West Moreton yesterday.

Mr Springborg challenged Mrs Miller to speak out against federal health funding cuts.

But Mrs Miller returned fire saying it was time Mr Springborg took responsibility for the decisions regional health boards make following state government funding cuts.

Mr Springborg said Mrs Miller should join the Newman Government in criticising federal funding cuts which removed more than $4 million to West Moreton Health Service budget.

"Mrs Miller should say whether she supports these federal cuts and outline to the community their local impact," he said.

Mrs Miller said it was fiction that the Newman Government was not responsible for the West Moreton Hospital and Health Board's decisions.

"Whenever regional health boards sack frontline workers or cut services the Minister runs for cover and tries to pretend he has no responsibility," she said.
