Mr HALLETT (CANNING, WESTERN AUSTRALIA) - I address my question to the Minister representing the Minister for Customs and Excise. Is it a fact that petrol prices at Norseman in Western Australia are 4s. 2£d. a gallon for standard grade and 4s. 5d. a gallon for super grade and that 103 miles east of Norseman the price is 6s. a gallon and stays at that price until 100 miles out of Port Augusta? If this is a fact, can the Minister say why these prices are far in excess of the figures that should apply in accordance with the Commonwealth Government's policy that fuel prices in country areas should not be more than 4d. a gallon above city prices?
