Aboriginal children in Australia were sometimes used for medical tests, it has been claimed.
Aborigine rights campaigner Kathleen Mills said she had heard of children being injected with a leprosy treatment and becoming very ill.
She said many members of the "Stolen Generations" - Aborigines taken from their homes and raised by white families - had similar experiences.
Senior politicians said they had never heard such claims before.
