Mr BIRD (BATMAN, VICTORIA) - Has the attention of the Prime Minister been directed to a statement made at the annual conference of the Australian Automobile Association yesterday by the president of that body that, in view of the urgent need for road funds, the Australian Automobile Association believed that motorists, in a spirit of co-operation, would willingly continue to pay the extra 3d. a gallon on petrol recently imposed by the Government as a temporary measure, provided that the proceeds were all used in the implementation of a road programme? Will the Government give serious and early consideration to this suggestion, because of the rapid deterioration of roads all over the Commonwealth?
