Senator GRIMES (Minister for Social Security)(8.05) —In our previous consideration of Appropriation Bill (No. 3) 1983-84 Senator Walters asked about three market surveys but I was unable to answer her in detail. One survey was conducted on section 17 disputes with the doctors. That survey is presently a working document of the Government and is being actively used in formulating Government policies and priorities. The other two surveys are not yet completed and have not been presented to the Minister. They will be used to formulate Government policy and priorities in these areas. The Government will release the results of the surveys when they are no longer being used in the preparation of policy.
