Mr DALY (GRAYNDLER, NEW SOUTH WALES) - My question is directed to the Minister for Health. Is it a fact that a new pill, which is claimed to stop people from getting drunk, recently went on sale in Great Britain? Has this pill been included on the free medicine list? If not, will the Minister consider making it available through this medium to Australians who, because of the depressing effects of the Government's changing policies and the resultant unemployment, bankruptcies and general distress may have taken to drink in order to drown their sorrow at the inability of the Government to protect their interests?
