Senator ALLISON (6:39 PM) —I want to go back to the costing of the safety net. I wonder if the minister can clarify the position as to specialists. It was my understanding that over four years the assumption was that the gap for specialists would at least double for a fifth, or 20 per cent, of concessional and ordinary patients with the $300 safety net. Can the minister clarify that? Has that assumption now been changed in the most recent figures or is that still the case?
