Mr Bowen asked the Minister for Transport and Regional Services, in writing, on 10 May 2005:

(1)   Does any agency for which the Minister is responsible pay for massages for its staff; if so, what sum did each agency spend on this purpose in 2004.

(2)   What was the cost per massage.

(3)   How many staff made use of this service.

Mr Truss (Minister for Transport and Regional Services) —The answer to the honourable member’s question is as follows:

No agency in the Transport and Regional Services portfolio directly funded massages for staff in 2004. Payment or reimbursement, however, may be made by Comcare, direct to a staff member or provider, for massages where a staff members’ compensation approved rehabilitation plan includes such treatment.
