Mr MORGAN (Reid) (2:41 AM) .- I referred to this clause in my secondreading speech and pointed out the difficulties that would arise if it were agreed to in its present form. The joint committee in its report stated -

We desire to point out that certain unregistered health practitioners, such as osteopaths, have sometimes been in advance of medical practice, and we recommend that there be no prohibition of advertisements by chiropractors, osteopaths and similar practitioners unless their work is prohibited by legislation.

If the clause is passed in its present form such practitioners will he prohibited from explaining their procedure.

Mr Beasley - I am prepared to agree to the inclusion at the beginning of subclause 1 of the words "Except as prescribed ".
