DEBATES - Tuesday 23 May 1995 $350 000 to continue upgrading Alice Springs Hospital. $129 000 to expand special education services. $700 000 for education and training in Aboriginal communities and remote areas. 0 $600 000 to construct a new police station and cell block at Ti Tree. $840 000 to replace or upgrade health clinics in outlying communities. 1 note that a large number of significant capital works for future years are proposed in the Regional Highlights documents accompanying the budget. Mr SPEAKER: Order! The honourable ministers time has expired. Mr SETTER (Jingili): Mr Speaker, I move that the honourable minister be granted an extension of time to complete his remarks. Motion agreed to. Mr POOLE: Mr Speaker, other significant capital works for future years are proposed in the Regional Highlights booklets. These include: significant improvements at West MacDonnell National Park and the Alice Springs Telegraph Station Historical Reserve; 0 the construction of a new primary school at Larapinta at a cost of more than $3m; 0 the upgrading of the Alice Springs Police Station at a total cost of almost $2m; 0 major improvements to the highways around Alice Springs, including the continued development of the Western Tourist Loop.; continued upgrading of Alice Springs Hospital and rural health clinics; 0 continued housing construction in both urban, rural and remote areas; and, 0 construction of a new fire station for Alice Springs. 1 believe the announcements that I have mentioned, when added to the high level of services that this government already provides, are really good news for the residents of Alice Springs and the surrounding region. This is a responsible budget which continues to invest in the Territorys future. I commend the bill to honourable members. 3549
