Mr ROBINSON (COWPER, NEW SOUTH WALES) - My question to the Minister for Health refers to the problem of poison contained in numerous products sold to the public in the form of weed killers, pest exterminators and many other like products. In view of the tragic occurrences of accidental swallowing of products of this kind by children, resulting in unfortunate fatalities, will the Minister examine the present methods of evaluation of poisons, the controls imposed by State authorities on the sale of poisons to the public, the precautions required to be taken by persons in possession of poisons and the provision of up to date registration of poisons and poison antidotes?
