Mr ROSEVEAR - In view of the numerous warnings that have been given to the public about the curtailment of luxury spending, and the prohibition of the manufacture of goods classed as luxuries, I ask the Prime Minister whether his attention has been directed to the fact that on two days recently £35,000 changed hands in Sydney at the racehorse yearling sales? Does the Government consider money expended in that .way to be luxury spending? In view of the fact that throughout Australia at this time of the year approximately £200,000 changed hands at the sales of yearling racehorses, what steps does the Government propose to take towards limiting this luxury spending ?
