Senator TURNBULL (TASMANIA) - I direct my question to the Minister for Health. In view of the fact that the National Health and Medical Research Council in October 1971 considered that there was inadequate evidence that group vaccination had had any significant influence on the incidence of influenza or in providing significant protection for the individual, and that the benefits of immunisation against influenza were doubtful, why has the Government not prevented its own organisation, the Commonwealth Serum Laboratories, from advertising suggestively to the contrary?


Senator Sir KENNETH ANDERSON

That is a question which I would not presume to answer without notice. I will take it on notice and get a reply.
