Mr CONELAN - Some weeks ago, I asked a question about the disposal of confiscated cigarettes in Queensland. Approximately 1,000,000 cigarettes were to be disposed of, but the auction had to be stopped because of the chaos which occurred among intending buyers. Does the Government propose to allow the remaining cigarettes to deteriorate, or will the trade be asked to dispose of them? Will a percentage of the cigarettes be suppled to ex-servicemen's organizations?
