Opposition Leader Luke Foley made the announcement on Sunday saying Labor’s infrastructure plan for schools and plans would provide $1 billion more than the Liberal government has promised.

Similar to the Baird government’s commitment made in June last year, Labor has promised to provide a new emergency department, up to 14 new operating theatres, state-of-the-art pathology services and additional beds, based on demand.

“Labor’s commitment is unconditional whereas under the Liberals, the redevelopment will only proceed if NSW families agree to Mr Baird’s blackmail and the privatisation of the electricity network,” Mr Foley said. This story Administrator ready to work first appeared on Nanjing Night Net.
