A number of us have for a long time supported the concept of free long-term residential care, as recommended by the royal commission. The Government have not accepted it. I do not think that the Opposition have accepted it either. I have tabled two early-day motions, and hope at some point to persuade the Government to do the good, honest thing, because then all these problems would disappear.
