Dr Donald Cameron (OXLEY, QUEENSLAND) - There has been a temporary delay in the issue of Salk vaccine. This is due to the very stringent precautions that are always taken by the Commonwealth Serum Laboratories to ensure both the potency and the safety of the vaccines. No doubt the honorable member will be aware that this is not the first time it has been judged necessary to hold up deliveries of vaccine until the full tests are properly satisfied. It is my hope and expectation that the delay on this occasion will not be a long one.
