Mr CLARK (DARLING, NEW SOUTH WALES) - Has the Minister representing the Minister for Trade and Customs seen a paragraph in Sunday's newspapers that, a woman was charged 9s. for a bottle of olive oil, and that when she threatened to bring the matter to the notice of the Prices Commissioner she was offered a refund of 5s. 3d.? Can he say what the practice of the department is in such cases, and does he not think thaiproceedings should be instituted in this instance?
