Charters Towers - Eventide Aged Care Facility

Eligibility - Electors of the Division of Dalrymple

Principal Petitioner:

David Watson
3 Barkla Road

Total Signatures - 1000

Sponsoring Member: Shane Knuth MP

Posting Date: 22/05/2013

Tabled Date: 22/05/2013

Responded By: Hon Lawrence Springborg MP on 28/06/2013

TO: The Honourable the Speaker and Members of the Legislative Assembly of Queensland

The petition of the electors of the Division of Dalrymple draws to the attention of the House that Eventide Aged Care Facility has provided a magnificent and essential service to our frail and elderly citizens since it was built in 1929 and the Charters Towers District has a massive, aging population who originally paid for and built this wonderful facility in the first place with their hard-earned tax dollars.


Your petitioners therefore request the House to vehemently oppose any plans or proposals to sell-off, close-down or privatise this facility.
