Mr HADLEY (LILLEY, QUEENSLAND) - I have received from Brisbane the complaint that some persons who have entered unregistered hospitals have on that account been precluded from participation in the Hospital Benefits Scheme. They have been compelled to enter such hospitals because of the acute shortage of beds in registered hospitals. Will the Minister representing the Minister for Social .Services take up with the Ministers for Health in the States the matter of allowing payments to be made to persons who enter or have entered unregistered hospitals for treatment, without the knowledge that such hospitals were not registered under the act, and who have been or will be excluded from the benefits of the act?
