Mr BEASLEY - On the 18th November, the honorable member for Darling (Mr. Clark) asked whether the Prices Commissioner had prevented the Sydney Daily Mirror from publishing the prices of basic food commodities. Inquiries have disclosed that, some months ago, a representative of this newspaper discussed with the Deputy Prices Commissioner, Sydney, a proposal that it should feature the maximum prices of certain goods. Far from preventing publication or discouraging the proposal, the Deputy

Prices Commissioner gave every assistance, and I am assured that close cooperation exists between this newspaper and the Prices Branch. A list published under this arrangement appeared as usual on the 19th November.
