Senator Baume asked the Minister representing the Minister for Health, upon notice:

What is the number of Canberra doctors who have agreed to work in Canberra hospitals, under conditions laid down by the Australian Government.

Senator Wheeldon - The Minister for Health has provided the following answer to the honourable senator's question:

This matter is being handled by the Canberra Hospitals Management Board, a statutory authority. The Board is dealing with all applications received in complete confidentiality and it would be inappropriate for the Minister to require the Board to provide information on the numbers of applications received or on where they came from. However, the Chairman of the Board has stated that well over a hundred applications have been received, including a number from leading world specialists.
