Mr HOLLOWAY (MELBOURNE, VICTORIA) (Minister for Labour and National Service) - I have not read the letter referred to. I agree -with Dr. Barry that if the facts are as he has stated 'them, it is a " pretty grim business ". T do not know whether or not the statements quoted are true. I shall draw the attention of the Minister for Health and Minister for Social Services to the questions-which the honorable gentleman has raised .and shall ascertain what views he holds in regard to the convening of .a conference. The Minister is continually having :confer.ences with the Health Departments of all the States. I add that more has been done in connexion with this matter by the Commonwealth Labour Government during the last few years than had previously .been done in Australia.
