Senator DITTMER - I preface my question to the Minister representing the Minister for Health by saying that I thought earlier today perhaps I had been too decent or ill advised in giving the Minister a copy of my question. Subsequently I realised when a question was asked of the Minister by another senator that I was too decent and ill advised. I ask: Has the Minister for Health approved of increased contributions to medical benefit funds as from 1st April? Was it with a peculiarly grim, grisly and sepulchral sense of humour that the Government perpetrated the greatest April Fool's Day joke of all time on the people by giving approval to, in many cases, unjustified increases in medical benefit funds' contributions?
