Mr J R FRASER - I ask the Minister for Health: Will he consider having officers of his department inquire of the teaching universities throughout Australia as to the output or turn-off of graduates in dentistry over recent years and the possible future output? Will he further seek information as to the number of graduates in each year who remain to practice in Australia? Having secured those figures, will the Minister then consider whether the production of graduates in dentistry is proving adequate for the needs of Australia's population and will he consider some means to encourage young people to enter dentistry courses at our universities?
