Guyra Shire Council Aged-care Facility Funding
Mr RICHARD TORBAY: My question is addressed to the Minister for Housing. Will the Minister advise the House on the status of an application for financial assistance from Guyra Shire Council for the construction of an aged-care home at Tingha?
Mr CARL SCULLY: I have received correspondence from the general manager of Guyra Shire Council, which is a great council. The council sought approval for $30,000 for a two-unit aged-care facility. I indicate to the honourable member that, following his strong representations and the cogency of that letter, I have approved $30,000 to enable a two-unit aged-care facility to be built in the great town of Tingha.
