Mr Barnard d asked the Prime Minister, upon notice -

With the object of ensuring correct grade, will he consider the advisability of introducing a system of inspection of kerbstone petrol pumps throughout Australia?

Mr Lyons - Owing to constitutional difficulties it is not possible for the Commonwealth to legislate to give effect to the recommendation of the chairman of the Royal Commission on Petrol that a definite standard for petrol be prescribed, and that all petrol should be sold under a specification which should appear on the pump, or to institute a system of inspection with the object of ensuring correct grade. The chairmen's recommendations have, however, been brought under the notice of the States for any action the States consider desirable.
