Dr K.D. HAMES replied: […] We have therefore spent $1.5 million on a major upgrade to the X-ray ward itself, which people visit for scans both as inpatients and outpatients; and $2.2 million on a brand-new MRI scanner. The scanner has a couple of good things. One is the larger hole into which people are inserted for a scan. That enables us to cater for a larger patient who needs to go in —

Several members interjected.

Dr K.D. HAMES: Even you, Leader of the Opposition, in your current trim state, would fit in there very easily! It also caters for people who suffer from claustrophobia.

Mr T.R. Buswell: What about bike shorts?

Mr E.S. Ripper: I give a commitment not to wear lycra!

Mr T.R. Buswell: I haven’t.

Dr K.D. HAMES: Don’t you start, member for Vasse!
