Senator GARETH EVANS (Attorney-General)(4.25) —I am told the Medicare levy is not identified separately in the tax schedules, and as a matter of formal authority the Defence paymasters are not authorised to put anything else on pay slips other than that which is the subject of some authorisation. It sounds as though some further steps have to be taken-whether by way of regulation or otherwise, I am not sure-to enable such a step to be taken. I will draw Senator Walters's remarks-as I said I would-to the relevant Minister in order that he can determine whether he wants to take that particular step.
