To the Editor: I concluded my recent article with a hope that the "recommendations of the Dawson Committee will provide much needed amendment to the Trade Practices Act".1 In the article, I argued that medical rosters ran the risk of illegality as exclusionary provisions under the Trade Practices Act 1974 (Cwlth) because of either a drafting deficiency in the Act or a policy non-appreciation of what should and what should not be banned under it. I advocated amending the Act in two crucial respects to bring our law into line with that of New Zealand and the United States.
