Mr ROSEVEAR (DALLEY, NEW SOUTH WALES) - Does the Minister for Supply and Development know that hardship has been suffered by the owners of one or two motor lorries, some of which are being paid for under hire-purchase agreements, because of the drastic petrol rationing regulations ? Does he appreciate the great difference between the effect of the flat-rate petrol cuts upon large carrying organizations, which are able to rationalize their business to meet the cuts, and the effect of the same regulations upon smaller men who are not able to do so? Is it the intention of the Government to continue the present unscientific and unfair method of flat-rate rationing?
