Senator LITTLE (Victoria) I s the Minister representing the Minister for Social Security now in a position to inform the Australian people whether the compulsory payment of 1.35 per cent of taxable income proposed to finance the Health Insurance Bill 1973 will itself be

tax deductible? Are any other insurance commitments entered into to provide cover for private ward treatment in hospitals to be a deduction from income for tax assessment?

Senator Douglas McCLELLAND (NEW SOUTH WALES) I have sought from my colleague the Minister for SocialSecurity the additional information required by the honourable senator but as yet it is not forthcoming. All I can say to the honourable senator is that I provided him with an answer on behalf of my colleague last Wednesday and the honourable senator then raised the matter on the adjournment. In addition to that information with which I provided him I have sought additional information. As I said, that information, if any, as yet is not forthcoming.
