‘His doctors are happy’: Premier ‘on track’ to return to work in June

“He’s up and about,” Mr Merlino said. “His doctors are happy with his progress. Still a little way to go, but he’s doing well.

He said he had been in regular contact with Mr Andrews and planned to speak with him on the telephone later on Thursday.
