Dr Everingham (CAPRICORNIA, QUEENSLAND) asked the Minister for Repatriation, upon notice:

(1)   What was the estimated average payment per family by his Department for (a) the provision of drugs and dressings, (b) local medical officer and private medical services and (c) hospital and ancillary, including prosethetic, services, to (i) repatriation patients and (ii) other patients in the latest year for which figures are available.

(2)   What percentage do these payments represent of estimated costs to these families for the goods and services in each case.

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

The Repatriation Department's records are not structured in a way which would enable me to provide meaningful information along the lines requested. However, in addition to the statistical information provided in the Repatriation Commission's Annual Reports, various other statistics are compiled. If the honourable member could advise me of his particular interest in this regard I will try to provide him with relevant statistics or estimates.
