Mr BREEN (CALARE, NEW SOUTH WALES) - I have received from the Young Branch of the Farmers and Settlers Association of New .South Wales a communication which contains the following passage: -

Several instances have been reported, when breakdowns occur in tha harvest fields, local farmers have not sufficient petrol ration coupons to enable them to get to town and secure the necessary replacement parts. In cases such as these, applications have been made to the local police transport officers, who, unfortunately, do not possess the authority to issue special allowances to meet such cases.

I now ask the Minister for Supply and Development whether he will give to the Liquid Fuel Control Board a direction whereby farmers so placed will be enabled to receive sufficient petrol ration tickets to tide them over immediate difficulties?

Suggest corrections
