Mr HOWSE (CALARE, NEW SOUTH WALES) - My question, which is addressed to the Minister for Health, has reference to the new poliomyelitis vaccine recently announced in the United States of America, which is reported to be capable of oral administration. Can the Minister advise honorable members concerning the efficacy of this new vaccine? Does the Minister propose to introduce it into Australia at an early date? If it is readily available, can it be used for adults as well as children, so that the whole population may be immunized?
