Senator WILLESEE (WESTERN AUSTRALIA) - I ask the Minister for Health: As the Commonwealth Government recently attacked the 6 per cent increase granted in the national wage case as an inflationary and irresponsible action, will the Minister give an assurance that any increase in doctors' fees will be less than the 6 per cent level awarded in the national wage case? Further, will he assure the Senate that any increase in doctors' fees will be only as a result of searching independent arbitration?
