Dear Sir -

As we in Western Australia have been experiencing considerable difficulty in obtaining delivery of motor bodies to meet our requirements, I found it necessary to come east in order to clarify the position and to obtain quotations for the delivery of motor bodies.

To this end I called upon General MotorsHolden's Limited, of South Australia, who received me very cordially and stated they would be very glad to give me a quotation for 1,000 motor bodies deliverable in fifties. At their request I handed them Nash factor}' blue-print specifications, and was informed that if I could provide them with a Nash chassis and body they would be able to give me a quote within four days. I called upon Mr. Rasch, of Rasch Motors, Adelaide, who intimated that if a representative of General Motors-Holden's Limited called, he would hand them over to me. Mr. Boland, of the lastmentioned company, promised to have them picked up. but failed to do so, despite several interviews and phone calls. After waiting about fourteen days I informed them of my intention of going on to Sydney, and they then informed me that the quotations would be waiting there for me.

Senator Hardy - The Nash is not an English car.
