Middlemore rot: David Clark, Jonathan Coleman not briefed

From Morning Report, 6:40 am on 23 March 2018

Both the current and former Health Ministers say they weren't briefed about the extent of decay in buildings at Middlemore Hospital. The Health Minister David Clark has signed off an extra $11.5 million to fix one of the Middlemore buildings, the Scott Building, but says the board told him nothing about the other problems when he visited last week. He says he is not happy about that and wants an explanation.
