2. Dr MURIEL NEWMAN to the Minister of Social Services and Employment: What specific evidence, if any, has he received that the work testing of sole parents has not led to more sole parents being employed and lower numbers on the domestic purposes benefit?

3. Hon ROGER SOWRY to the Minister of Health: How many cancer patients have been reimbursed the costs of radiation treatment received in Australia?

7. Hon TONY RYALL to the Minister of Police: What is his response to the media report that states: "we have a Minister clashing with his uniformed legman over things as minute as traffic car livery. The [Minister's] line on using landlines rather than mobile phones has also rankled with Robinson's rank and file. The Minister's way of settling Robinson's hash is to snaffle more power over him through law changes that would make the thinning blue line a dotted one."?
