Mr SMITH (WAKEFIELD, SOUTH AUSTRALIA) - I have noticed this week that the prices of motor spirit and of several other petroleum products have been reduced. In the last fe,\ months, motor spirit has been reduced in price by about 4½d. a gallon. Is the Minister representing the Minister for Supply and Shipping aware that the price of motor cylinder oil has been increased 50 per cent, above pre-war rates? Will the honorable gentleman cause investigation to be made to ascertain why motor cylinder oil has not been reduced in price correspondingly with other petroleum products ?
