asked the Minister of Health if he has in contemplation any changes in the near future in the Regulations governing medical and any other benefit under the national health insurance scheme; and, if so, when such changes will be placed upon the Table of the House?

Draft Regulations with respect to the issue of certificates for national health insurance purposes by medical practitioners, and with respect to the definition of drugs for the purposes of medical benefit, are in preparation. I cannot yet say when these Regulations will be laid before Parliament under Section 93 of tie National Health Insurance Act, 1924; but before this is done, 40 days' notice will have to be given under the Rules Publication Act, 1893, of the proposal to make the Regulations and of the place where copies of the draft of them may be obtained.
