Senator SHEIL (QUEENSLAND) - I preface my question, which I direct to the Minister representing the Minister for Social Security, by saying that the Minister for Social Security made repeated election promises before both the 1972 and 1974 Federal elections that under his administration Queensland would receive $22m for health services. So far Queensland has not received one penny of this money. Will the Minister please indicate when this promise will be honoured?

Senator WHEELDON - I would have thought that one of the problems of the Opposition was not that the Labor Government had not honoured its promises but that it had honoured its promises. As to the specific matter which has been raised by Senator Sheil, I am afraid that I do not have the information available with me here, but I shall refer the question to the Minister for Social Security and see that Senator Sheil has an answer as early as possible.
