Mr BADMAN (GREY, SOUTH AUSTRALIA) - Has the attention of the Minister for Healthand Social Services been drawn to the report in last Saturday's Sydney Morning Herald, to the effect that the Government of New South Wales had decided to introduce legislation to permit foreign doctors holding degrees acceptable to the British Medical Association to accept appointment to country districts for a term of. five years, at the end of which term they would be registered? If so, will he suggest to other State governments that they pass similar legislation, in order that medical aid may be available to residents in remote country centres where, at present, it is impossible to obtain the services of a resident Australian doctor?
