My question is to the Health Minister, Ms Mikakos.

It relates to the billions of dollars of previously unscheduled expenditure that is being spent in the Health portfolio as part of the Government’s response to COVID-19.

Minister: much of that new funding was obviously allocated very suddenly and unexpectedly, a number of weeks ago now.

So can you now tell us, several weeks later, specifically how the COVID-19 expenditure pressures have altered the Government’s overall future spending priorities (and savings priorities) in the Health portfolio for the remainder of the two-and-a-half years of this term of Parliament?
