Mr FROST (FRANKLIN, TASMANIA) (Minister for Repatriation) - Arrangements have been made to distribute supplies of atebrin in all country areas. I received a request from Queensland that distribution should he effected through ambulance centres. However, medical opinion is that it would be dangerous to allow the distribution to be effected in any haphazard manner, because atebrin must be administered under medical supervision.

Mr Francis - What is the department's plan?

Mr FROST - Adequate supplies are distributed throughout the Commonwealth. Atebrin is made available to any ex-serviceman upon application to a medical officer.
