Mr SIMMONS —I give notice that, on the next day of sitting, I shall move :

That this House-

(1) notes the recent decision of Bristol Myers to substantially increase the price of the infant formulae Pregestimil and Glucose Nutramagin;

(2) is of the opinion that this decision is causing considerable financial distress to many families throughout Australia who use such formulae for their children; and

(3) urges the Government, through the Minister for Health, to expeditiously resolve this serious problem.

The motion will be seconded by the honourable member for Lillee (Mrs Darling).
