Dame ENID LYONS (DARWIN, TASMANIA) - I have received from Tasmania a telegram indicating an acute shortage of insulin, and that, I understand, is due directly to the meat strike in Queensland. As the strike has now ended, I ask the Minister representing the Minister for Health to inform me what supplies of insulin are now available, what steps have been taken to distribute them, and how soon can an appreciable improvement be expected?
