Mr THOMPSON (PORT ADELAIDE, SOUTH AUSTRALIA) - I ask the Minister for Health a question. Can the honorable gentleman say when the new pharmaceutical benefits will come into operation? Will they commence on 1st January next? Also, what will be the position with regard to drugs that are not covered by the pharmaceutical benefits scheme? Will there be anything on the prescriptions issued by doctors to show whether the drugs prescribed are covered by the scheme?
