Mr HANSEN (WIDE BAY, QUEENSLAND) - My question is directed to the Minister representing the Minister for Health. What proportion of the total cost of the pharmaceutical benefits scheme is expected to be borne by the patient charge? Does he know of any reason why the patient charge should be doubled from 50c to $1 rather than be increased by a smaller amount?

Dr FORBES (BARKER, SOUTH AUSTRALIA) (Minister for Immigration) - I will be glad to convey the honourable gentleman's question to my colleague in another place. I am sure that my colleague will provide him with a full answer.
