Mr JOLLY (LILLEY, QUEENSLAND) - I ask the Minister representing the Minister for Trade and Customs, whether it is a fact, as was stated in the press recently, that the ration of tea issued to each person in internment camps is 2 oz. a week, whilst the allowance to ordinary civilians is 1 oz. a week?

Mr BEASLEY - I am not aware as to whether there is any authority for the statement, but I shall refer the question to the Minister for Trade and Customs and advise the honorable member of the result.
