Mr GUY (BASS, TASMANIA) - I have received from the Grocers Association of Tasmania a letter in which the writer states -

It will also interest you to know that if a Launceston grocer sends to Melbourne or Sydney for sugar or sugar products at the spot cash price, he has to pay 4s. 9d. a ton wharfage, &c, which amount the Colonial Sugar Refining Company is made an allowance for by the Queensland Government - another breach of agreement.

Is the Colonial Sugar Refining Company committing a breach of the agreement by charging wharfage to the Launceston growers, when an allowance is made to that company by the Queensland Government for that purpose?

Suggest corrections
