Senator GEORGES —by leave-Further to my statement yesterday, I inform the Senate that the Joint Parliamentary Committee of Public Accounts met today to discuss the request from Dr Geoffrey Edelsten that, first, he be given an opportunity to appear before the Committee and, secondly, that he be provided with information from working papers of the Committee's medical fraud and overservicing pathology inquiry. The Committee has agreed to Dr Edelsten appearing before it, but insists upon a written submission in advance. In connection with Dr Edelsten's request for certain information, the Committee has agreed to speak to Dr Edelsten to determine exactly what information he has requested and whether that information can be provided under the relevant Acts. The Committee has yet to determine the dates when meetings will be held.
