Mr GULLETT - The answers to the honorable member's questions are as follow: -

1.   Yes.

2.   Yes.

3.   The duty on British-made insulin is 30 per cent. ad valorem, plus primage 10 per cent. Even allowing for exchange and other charges, it seems most improbable that the landing charges reach anything like the percentage suggested.

4.   Yes. The Commonwealth Serum Laboratories can meet the whole requirements of Australia with insulin of a highly satisfactory quality, and at a very reasonable price. They are also exporting insulin to New Zealand.

5.   As ample supplies of insulin are available, the interests of invalids appear to be satisfactorily provided for.
