Dr Klugman (PROSPECT, NEW SOUTH WALES) asked the Minister for Health, upon notice:

(1)   Is it a fact that the Hospitals Contribution Fund of Australia does not reveal to the general public or its own subscribers its Articles of Association.

(2)   If so, will he obtain and table the Fund's Articles of Association for the information of Members.

Dr Forbes (BARKER, SOUTH AUSTRALIA) (Minister for Health) - The answer to the honourable member's question is as follows:

(1)   and (2) The Hospitals Contribution Fund of Australia is a company limited by guarantee and registered under the Companies Act of New South Wales. That Act requires a copy of the Articles of Association to be filed with the Registrar of Companies in Sydney. The document may be perused at the Registrar's Office or a copy of the document may be obtained upon the payment of the appropriate fees. The Articles of Association are thus readily available to anyone who wishes to see them and it is not considered appropriate that they be tabled in this House.
