Senator KEEFFE asked the Minister for Health, upon notice:

Does the Minister consider that professional fees are not and never have been payment for physical work done, but are, in fact, the buying price of know-how and compensation for responsibility accepted and discharged by chemists.


The answer to the honourable senator's question is as follows:

Remuneration paid to chemists including professional fees for supplying pharmaceutical benefits takes into account the aspects of physical work done by pharmacists, as well as the professional knowledge and responsibility accepted and discharged by them.
