Mr MCVEIGH (DARLING DOWNS, QUEENSLAND) - Will the Minister for Social Security table in the House all the information contained in the documents and calculations on which he bases his assertion that health insurance under his proposals will be cheaper for three out of four families and seven out of ten single persons?

Mr HAYDEN (OXLEY, QUEENSLAND) (Minister for Social Security) - Basically the information used for the purposes of that exercise comes from the Bureau of Census and Statistics pub lication 'Family Income 1969' which was published quite recently. It is a simple exercise to update those calculations. When I was in Opposition I received no help from the Government and did the hard work myself. I suggest that members of the Opposition ought to start doing a bit of work too.
