Mr WENTWORTH (MACKELLAR, NEW SOUTH WALES) - By way of preface to a question which I address to the Prime Minister, in his capacity as Acting Treasurer, may I say that the medical profession has recently come to the conclusion that the best way of resuscitating the apparently drowned is by a new method known as the " expired air " or " mouth-to-mouth " method. This method, for its successful application, requires a special model which is used in training. Is the Prime Minister aware that the defence forces have adopted this new method and have ordered a large number of these models? Is he aware that the Surf Life Saving Association has decided to adopt this method, and has recommended that the clubs purchase this apparatus at their own expense? The models cost £42 each. Would the Government consider supplying models to the clubs in the numbers considered appropriate by the Surf Life Saving Association as a gesture towards the saving of lives and to mark the great value of trie surf life saving movement?
