Senator Douglas McClelland (NEW SOUTH WALES) - r-I ask the Minister for Health: Has the survey by his Department at Wollongong of the overall effectiveness of the subsidised medical service yet been completed? If so, is the Minister able to provide the Senate with figures showing the number of people who are receiving subsidised health service membership compared with the numbers at Wollongong who are eligible for such assistance but have not availed themselves of it? As a result of the survey, does the Government intend taking any further action towards getting better coverage of the underprivileged section of the community by way of the subsidised medical service?


Senator Sir KENNETH ANDERSON -

I have a brief on this matter. It is a little long and perhaps it would be more convenient if I were to give some facts on the matter at the end of question time. It is an interesting and relevant question and I will certainly respond to it before question time ends.
