Mr BIRD (BATMAN, VICTORIA) -Can the Minister for Health inform the House whether the lists of available drugs in connexion with pharmaceutical benefits and pensioner benefits were compiled by the statutory Pharmaceutical Benefits Advisory Committee for which provision is made in section 101 of the National Health Act 1953 ? If those lists were not compiled by that committee, who was responsible for them? What is the reason for the delay in the appointment of the committee, which is authorized by the Parliament?
