Mr SPOONER (ROBERTSON, NEW SOUTH WALES) - The Minister for Trade and Customs has power to relax in certain circumstances the regulations with respect to the rationing of liquor supplies. Close to a town in the northern end of my electorate a large military establishment as recently been set up, with the result that a very large number of men is now looking to the hotels of the town for their liquor requirements. Will the Minister representing the Minister for Trade and Customs ascertain whether the ten hotelkeepers of that town sent to the Collector of Customs a statement of their case on the 27th April, and a telegram on the loth May, to neither of which, so far, have they received a reply, with the result that a very large number of soldiers cannot obtain supplies of liquor?
