Mr BLAKELEY (DARLING, NEW SOUTH WALES) asked the Minister for Health, upon notice -

1.   Is it a fact that the cost of liver extract used in the treatment of pernicious anaemia is unduly high, and that many people are unable to purchase same because of the price?

2.   Is it a fact that the cost of vaccine for the prevention and cure of tetanus is almost prohibitive to people of modest means?

3.   Are liver extract and tetanus vaccine manufactured by the Commonwealth Laboratories; if so, what is the cost of same to the people?
