Senator FOREMAN —I refer the Minister representing the Minister for Health to a report in the Adelaide Advertiser on 6 November in which the Australian Consumer Association claimed that certain types of skin tanning pills could lead to health problems. It was further reported that the South Australian Health Commission would investigate this matter and report back. Will the Minister seek a copy of this report and evaluate what action should be taken at the Federal level in regard to this matter?


Senator GRIMES —I am afraid that I have no knowledge of the matters raised by Senator Foreman. I will certainly seek a copy of the report and an early reply from the Minister and the Department about the problems he has raised.
