Mr BARNARD (BASS, TASMANIA) - 1 address a question to the Prime Minister. The Commonwealth and State Hospitals Agreement expires in June of this year. Have representations been received from all States for an increase of the Commonwealth grant of 8s. a day? Has the Prime Minister given consideration to that request? If so, is he now in a position to advise the Parliament of the Government's decision? I understand that the right honorable gentleman stated that the Commonwealth was examining other proposals in connexion with this matter. Is he now in a position to make the details of those proposals available to honorable members?

Mr Menzies - The Minister for Health will answer the question.
