Mr Mathews asked the Minister for Health, upon notice:

(1)   What was the decision of the former Minister for Health on the application under section 46 of the Australian Capital Territory Pharmacy Ordinance lodged with him on 24th February 1972, for a permit to advertise contraceptives (Hansard, page 1291).

(2)   Have any further applications been received; if so, what was the decision in each case.

Dr Everingham - The answer to the honourable member's question is as follows:

(1)   and (2) The application of 24th February 1972 was made to the Director-General of Health who declined to allow the advertisement to be published with his authority. No other applications have been received and the Ordinance has since been amended by the present Government to remove the prohibition on the advertising of contraceptives.
