Mr DALY (MARTIN, NEW SOUTH WALES) - Can the Minister repre- 'senting the Minister for Trade and Customs state the reason for the failure of ihe New South Wales Prices Commissioner to prosecute traders found guilty of overcharging at the Sydney Cricket Ground, despite evidence submitted in support of the charges? In view of the High Court's decision upholding the validity of regulations fixing the price of diluted fruit drinks at 4d. a glass up to 10 oz. size, why have not officers of the Prices Branch launched prosecutions to check the wholesale defiance of regulations by milk bar proprietors in Sydney, who continue to charge 5d., and in some cases 6d., a glass for such drinks?
