Mr PETERS (SCULLIN, VICTORIA) - I address my question to the Prime Minister. Will the legislation that the Government proposes to implement in relation to monopolies and unfair and restrictive trade practices prevent take-overs -such as that of Farmer and Company Limited, Sydney, by the Myer Emporium Limited? Is the Government gravely concerned at the number of monopolies which have arisen in the retail trade in Australia -aid which are operating to the serious disadvantage of small shopkeepers and the community in general'/

M-. MENZIES. - It is not possible for me to anticipate what the legislation will contain because the legislation is still in course of preparation.
