Mr BEASLEY - Yesterday, the honorable member for Darling (Mr. Clark) asked me whether breweries were permitted to issue invoices stamped with the condition, " Subject to alteration in price owing to increase in excise ". The Minister for Trade and Customs (Senator Keane) referred the matter to the Prices Commissioner, who stated that under the present order fixing the price of beer, breweries are not permitted to make sales on such conditional terms. If the honorable member will supply to the Prices Commissioner information as to any transaction of that kind, which has come to his notice, suitable action will be taken.
