Senator WALTERS(10.27) —Mr Deputy President, I have just 2 1/2 minutes tonight on which to speak on the Health Legislation Amendment Bill (No. 2) 1985. It seems to me that by the time I have opened my remarks on this Bill, it will be time to stop. However, I will start my remarks. The health legislation presently being debated by the Senate relates to several aspects of health care such as the 3B certificates, the considerable changes proposed to the Commonwealth Serum Laboratories Act, reform of the medifraud provisions and the identity card proposal that has been so eloquently spoken about tonight by Senator Knowles. Those are the four major areas that this Bill covers. As I would like to start off my speech tomorrow in a sensible fashion to do justice to it, I seek leave to continue my remarks later.

Leave granted; debate adjourned.
