Mr JAMES (HUNTER, NEW SOUTH WALES) - I desire to ask the Minister for Supply what has been the effect of the rationing of beer this year by reducing supplies by 35 per cent, of the average January and February sales * Is it not a fact that when the hotels run out of beer, many persons, including soldiers, consume " plonk " and other cheap wines to the detriment of their health ? Does the Government propose to remove the restrictions on the sale of beer in industrial centres?
