Mr Lynch asked the Treasurer, upon notice:

(1)   When does he expect to receive the report of the National Rehabilitation and Compensation Scheme Inquiry.

(2)   What direction has he issued to his Department concerning the establishment of an Australian Government Insurance Office to compete on a non-profit basis with private companies in all States in the fields of life assurance, fire, accident, workers' compensation and other forms of insurance.

(3)   Will proposals for such an Office be considered by the Government subsequent to the receipt and consideration of the report referred to in part (1).


Mr Crean - The answer to the honourable member's question is as follows:

(1)   The report of the National Rehabilitation and Compensation Scheme Committee of Inquiry is expected to be submitted at the end of March 1974.

(2)   and (3) As the Acting Treasurer stated on 9 October 1973 in reply to Question No. 834 (Hansard 9 October 1973) the Government is unlikely to consider the establishment of an Australian Government Insurance Office before it receives and considers the report of the National Rehabilitation and Compensation Scheme Committee of Inquiry.
