Senator GEORGES —by leave-In connection with the report of the Public Accounts Committee tabled last Wednesday, as chairman of the Public Accounts Committee I announce that I have called a meeting of the Joint Parliamentary Committee of Public Accounts to consider a request from Dr Geoffrey Edelsten that, firstly, he be given an opportunity to appear before the Committee; and secondly, he be provided with information from working papers of the Committee's medical fraud and overservicing pathology inquiry. The meeting will be held tomorrow. Honourable senators will be aware that Dr Edelsten has already been invited to make a submission to the Committee. That submission has not yet been received. I shall advise the Senate of the outcome of the Committee's deliberations.
