Hospitals - lt is likely that Federal Members and Senators also attended official openings of hospital projects within State programs which received Commonwealth financial assistance under the now-terminated Hospitals Development Program. However, Commonwealth financial assistance under this program related to the respective States' total programs and was not allocated to individual projects. Accordingly, the honourable member's question is not construed as being relevant to these types of projects.

(2)   No Commonwealth Government cheques were provided to be handed over at the official openings of any of the above projects.
