(1)   What amount has been allocated for research into health services in each of the last 5 years.

(2)   Into what areas has the research been directed, by whom was it undertaken and what research projects (a) are still current, (b) have been completed and (c) have been cancelled or suspended.

Dr Forbes - The Minister for Health has provided the following answer to the honourable member's question: (1), (2) and (3) The health services field is extensive, covering such areas as hospitals, nursing homes, mental health institutions, medical services, community health, environmental health and quarantine. Research in these fields is being undertaken in universities, government departments and agencies, voluntary health and welfare agencies and private commercial organisations, as well as by private individuals. I am not aware of the full extent of the research being undertaken throughout Australia in all these fields and am therefore unable to provide details of the projects being undertaken or the allocation of finance.
