Mr McGAURAN —I give notice that, on the next day of sitting, I shall move:

That this House-

(1) expresses its profound concern at the disastrous effect of Medicare on Victorian Bush Nursing Hospitals;

(2) recognises that Bush Nursing Hospitals are owned by the rural communities that they serve so well and are an integral component of the economic and social life of country Victoria;

(3) condemns the Minister for Health and the Government for failing to consider the detrimental effects of Medicare on Bush Nursing Hospitals, and

(4) further condemns the Minister for his delay in replying to the many representations to make alterations to Medicare so as to ensure the future of these vitally important institutions.
