SUPPLEMENTARY QUESTION ON GOVERNMENT BANKING

I note the minister said that Heywood Rural Health could use 'the bank of their choice’, but the bank of their choice is the Bendigo Bank. It is the only bank in Heywood. These are small communities, and Bendigo Bank provides the only choice of banking. Will the minister assure Heywood Rural Health that it will receive ongoing additional funding that matches any moneys lost due to the Treasurer’s central banking initiative?
