Dr NOTT (HERBERT, QUEENSLAND) - I. wish to direct the attention of the Minister for Health to the following paragraph which has appeared in the BrisbaneDaily Telegraph : -

Portion of the proposed agreement stated that the radium was to. remain the property of the Commonwealth, and that it was entrusted on loan to the board, which was responsible to the department for its safe custody and care. The board was to arrange for the radium, when not in use, to be stored in strong rooms or safes approved by the department, and the board was not to allow any portion of the radium to be used outside the Brisbane Hospital.

If that paragraph is correct, I should like to know what arrangements the Commonwealth proposes to make with the States for the treatment of persons outside the metropolitan area who may be suffering from cancer?

Suggest corrections
