Mr BEAZLEY (FREMANTLE, WESTERN AUSTRALIA) - I wish to ask the Minister for Health a question. Is it a fact that many Aborigines in the Northern Territory have died as a result of an epidemic of measles? Is the Minister aware that the Government of Western Australia has for some time been carrying out a programme of immunisation of Aborigines against measles? Why has not a similar programme been carried out in the Northern Territory, and what steps have been taken to remedy the existing situation?
