Mr J R Fraser - My question, which is to the Minister for Health, refers to his announcement that weekly charges at the Canberra Community Hospital will shortly be increased to £15 8s. for public ward patients, £24 17s. for intermediate ward patients and £33 5s. for private ward patients. I ask the Minister: Can he state the reasons for the imposition of these charges, which, in the case of private wards, are eleven times what was charged when this Government came to office?
