Senator NETTLE (7:59 PM) —That is why I am asking the minister to confirm for me where in the act it says that it is okay to advertise directly to consumers via the Internet. When I look at the Therapeutic Goods Administration web site, it says you cannot advertise directly. It is an absolutely spurious argument to say that putting information on the Internet is not making it available to consumers. That is an absurd argument—to say that you cannot advertise, but if you do it on the Internet it is not advertising. That is ridiculous. If you can find where it says that in the act, sure, I will check it out.
