Mr Lloyd asked the Minister for Health, upon notice:

(   1 ) Is the standard of those he has appointed as salaried medical specialists at Canberra hospitals adequate for the requirements of the medical school to be established at the Australian National University.

(2)   When is it anticipated that this medical school will be established.

Dr Everingham - The answer to the honorable member's question is as follows:

(   1 ) No decision has yet been made to establish a medical school at the Australian National University, but the medical specialists who have been offered salaried appointment, are of the high standard required to meet the requirements of a medical faculty. The Australian National University was closely involved with the Canberra Hospitals Board in the selection process.

(2)   A feasibility study is presently being undertaken by the Australian National University concerning the establishment of a medical school. A date for the establishment of a medical school cannot be forecast at this stage.
