Mr WHITTORN (BALACLAVA, VICTORIA) - I ask the Minister for Health whether there has been recent approval for additional capital expenditure by the Commonwealth Serum Laboratories in Melbourne. If so, will the equipment ordered or purchased be used to compete with private enterprise manufacturers who not only produce Australia's requirements but also exports? As these activities would clash with the Government's free enterprise policy and cause confusion in the pharmaceutical industry, will the Minister tell the House to what extent the Commonwealth Serum Laboratories will be expanded?
