Mr Kennedy asked the Minister for Repatriation, upon notice:

What was the (a) number and (b) percentage of general practitioners enrolled in the Local Medical Officer Scheme in (i) each State and Territory and (ii) the Commonwealth, in 1970-71 who received in reimbursement for treating persons covered in the Scheme (A) less than $500, (B) $500 to $1,000, (C) $1,001 to $2,500, (D) $2,501 to $5,000. (E) $5,001 to$ 10,000 and (F) more than $10,000.

Mr Holten - The answer to the honourable member's question is as follows:

Some Local Medical Officers who are in partnership do not receive a separate payment. Other Local Medical Officers submit accounts at irregular intervals (beyond twelve months) or do not claim payment. In the case of partnership practices the number of Local Medical Officers in each practice has been estimated and the payments made to the practice for the year ended 30th June 1971 have been converted to an estimated amount per Local Medical Officer. The following table incorporates this estimate in addition to the number of Local Medical Officers in single practices to whom payments were made for the year ended 30th June 1971.
