Mr MORGAN (REID, NEW SOUTH WALES) - I ask the Minister for Supply whether his attention has been drawn to a published statement by Mr. A. R. Tewksbury, chairman of Yellow Express Carriers Limited, to the effect that the Colonial Sugar Refining Company Limited has refused to his company supplies of methylated spirit for the purpose of blending with other liquid fuel to be used for transport purposes in connexion with the company's business? I understand that the spirit was refused when it was requested by Yellow Express Carriers Limited on the ground that the Colonial Sugar Refining Company Limited had to make its supplies available to the major oil companies under an arrangement made with the previous Government. Will the Minister investigate the position with the object of ensuring that supplies of such spirit shall be made available in the future direct to users of motor spirit?
