The answer to the first part of the question is in the affirmative. The steps taken by the Government to combat these diseases are based upon the recommendations of the Royal Commission, and include not only the provision of clinics at which skilled treatment is provided free of cost, but also an organised campaign of education and publicity as to the dangers of these diseases and the necessity for early treatment. I am not prepared, as at present advised, to suggest legislation for compulsory notification.
