Senator SHEIL (QUEENSLAND) - Will the Minister for Repatriation and Compensation tell us how many medical officers have left the Department of Repatriation this year and taken up positions with the Department of Social Security? With the implementation of the Government's new health policy, what arrangements are proposed for the coverage of repatriation medical and hospital cases?

Senator WHEELDON - I am afraid I did not quite follow the latter part of Senator Sheil 's question. I do not know the number of Department of Repatriation and Compensation medical officers who have resigned. I hope that the honourable senator is not suggesting that my accession to office has prompted their resignations. If he puts the question on notice, I will see that a detailed answer is provided.
