Description Of Item: Opinion of W K Fullagar of 1 Selborne Chambers dated 10th August 1936 with two further advices of 15th September 1936 and 9th August 1937. The first two concern the interpretation of Section 8 that allowed the registration of optometrists without recognisable qualification on the basis of experience and the last the interpretation of the advertising clause, Clause 13. Also in this file are papers relating to the desire of the profession for the Act to extend power to the Board to regulate the nature of advertising
Historical Significance: These papers relate to how the Board should decide on which unqualified optometrists should be registered in 1936 on the basis of experience and on-the-job training and the vexatious issue of restraint in advertising and the contentious matter of advertising by optometrists.
