Senator WHEELDON (Western AustraliaMinister for Repatriation and Compensation) - in reply- I do not want to speak at any length on this matter. The Government regards all of the provisions of the Bill as being integral to the Government's purpose in establishing a national health scheme throughout Australia. We believe that it was part of the mandate on which we were elected to office. I do not think that any purpose is served at this time in going into the matters to which Senator Guilfoyle has referred in detail. They will certainly be raised again in the Committee stage of the debate. I think that it would be much to the Senate's satisfaction if I were to leave the debate on the motion for the second reading of this Bill at this stage.



Question resolved in the affirmative.

Bill read a second time.

In Committee

Clauses 1 to 2 1 -by leave- taken together, and agreed to.
