Mr Lloyd asked the Minister for Health, upon notice, on 20 October 1977:

Has his Department instituted a policy of exchanging senior personnel for a limited period with those of similar status and standard in the private sector or State Government Departments; if not, why not.

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

Exchanges of staff both professional and clerical have been under consideration by my Department on various occasions over recent years. However, due in part to difficulties associated with aspects such as staff ceilings and release and replacement of staff no proposal has yet proceeded to finality. New arrangements tor staff ceilings for officers on exchange have now been instituted. I am hopeful that appropriate exchanges can now be negotiated in the interests of officers of my Department and the public and private sectors generally.
