Mr CAIRNS (YARRA, VICTORIA) - I ask the Minister for Health whether it is a fact that the Commonwealth Serum Laboratories are soon to cease production of penicillin and insulin, and that many of the employees will join those of the aircraft industry and the motor car industry on the labour market. Also, is it a fact that the Commonwealth Serum Laboratories have been reduced almost to bankruptcy under their present management, and that this and the proposal to stop production of penicillin and insulin are part of a plan to sell out the laboratories to an American chemical monopoly?
