Mr CLARK (DARLING, NEW SOUTH WALES) - Is the Prime Minister able ito inform me whether the royal commission appointed some time ago_ to inquire into medical services in connexion with the national health and pensions insurance scheme has yet made any report to the Government? If not, when is the commission's report expected!

Mr MENZIES - The sittings of the commission were suspended by reason -of the death of its chairman. No new chairman has since been appointed, so the work of the commission is in the same state as when the chairman died. No report has been received by the Government. This is one of the matters which the Government is taking into consideration in relation to the whole subject of national insurance, and upon which its general intentions will be announced this week.
