Mr BEASLEY - It is ; correct to say that the Government has decided that the supply of bicycle tyre- ami tubes to the public shall be discontinued, but it is true that the issue of these articles is being policed strictly. The control of supplies is more difficult in respect of bicycle parts than in respect of parts for motor cars; the latter are registered ami the use to which they are put can more easily be determined. The position in regard to supplies of rubber is indeed serious to all of the allied nations, and honorable members may rest assured that whatever restrictions may be imposed will be imposed only because there will be no alternative.
