Mr GANDER (REID, NEW SOUTH WALES) - I have received a letter from a constituent who cleans a doctor's plate every morning in the week, and for this service, which she has been performing for five years, she receives 1s.6d. a week.Will this person come under the provisions of the National Health and Pensions Insurance Act?

Mr CASEY - If the honorable member is trying to draw me into a controversy on the subject of doctors and national insurance I decline to be drawn, but if the information is genuinely required, as I expect it is, I ask him- to give me notice of the question, and I shall obtain a reply for him.
