Mr PEARCE (CAPRICORNIA, QUEENSLAND) - Has the Minister for Health any information to give the House in relation to a product known as " Magic Tan " which is claimed by its makers to produce a golden tan overnight? If the Minister considers that a health risk might be involved in using this chemical to change the colour of the skin, will he have it investigated by the National Health and Medical Research Council? In particular, will he have the council look into the reaction, if any, that would follow if a person were exposed or over-exposed to the sun a day or two after using " Magic Tan "? In any case, does the Minister not consider that the best and most enjoyable and relaxing way of gaining a sun-tan is to laze in the glorious sunshine of Queensland?
