The Bill provides for establishment of two
separate Health Services in the Top End
including Darwin, Katherine and Gove hos-
pitals and Central Australia including Alice
Springs and Tennant Creek hospitals.
The Bill repeals the Hospital Networks
Governing Councils established under Labor
with new Hospital Services Boards already
announced by the CLP albeit no board mem-
ber representing Tennant Creek!

The Environment Protection (Beverage
Containers and Plastic Bags) Legislation
Amendment Bill 2014 amends Labor’s Cash
for Containers scheme.
The purpose of the Bill ensures that effect
is given to the original intent of the Act by
improving operations and introducing new
provisions for efficiency at depots and ad-

Local Government Amendment Bill 2014
includes notification of council vacancies
within 10 days triggering bi-elections, new
arrangements for disciplinary procedures and
a new power for disciplinary committee’s to

This legislation raises questions of de-
mocracy, good governance and costs of the
Corporation split, reliability of services and
future power and water price hikes?
Can Territorians trust the CLP Government
will act in their best interests or the interests
of Federal Treasurer Joe Hockey offering
cash incentives to sell off public assets?
The legislation risks Northern Territory es-
sential services becoming private property
putting profits before people where a small
regional and remote customer base faces
increased power and water charges.
