Dame ENID LYONS (DARWIN, TASMANIA) - In view of the .many inquiries and complaints that I have received in regard to the distribution of tobacco, will the Minister representing the Minister for Trade and Customs state whether any authoritative information is available concerning the destination of that . tobacco which is represented by the difference between the ration received by servicemen as such, and the supplies that they can obtain as civilians after their discharge? In particular, have the officers examining black-market activities given specific attention to this point? Has the Government made any representations, to the Tobacco Manufacturers Distribution Committee on the need for allocating supplies tq newly-established retail businesses ?
