Mr Lloyd asked the Minister for Health, upon notice:

In order that articles such as that written by a Mr Jack Waterford in the Canberra Times of 2 1 October 1 976 are not repeated, will he instruct health authorities at Alice Springs that Murray Valley Encephalitis no longer exists, as it is now called Arbo Encephalitis.

Mr Hunt - The answer to the honourable member's question is as follows:

Yes. For the further information of the honourable member, I understand that the World Health Organisation has accepted 'Australian Encephalitis' as the preferred nomenclature in the Ninth Revision of the International Classification of Diseases, to come into effect internationally in 1979.
