Mr MALONEY (Melbourne) .- I understand that the Minister has accepted the suggestion of the Pharmaceutical Board to amend clause 3 so that the interpretation of medicines) shall include medicines " other than liniments and veterinary medicines." Medical men will agree with me that, for external application, methylated spirit can be used to advantage, and that it would be very expensive if other spirit had to be used in our hospitals and .asylums. I am informed by the Minister's colleagues, and by the official who is watching the Bill, that it will not be necessary to reinsert these words in clause 15; but I ask the honorable gentleman to see that they are inserted, if it is at all doubtful that they are not covered by the amended interpretation of the word "medicine."
