Senator ANDERSON (New South Wales) (Minister for Customs and Excise) (12:37 PM) . - Winton is a recognised distribution centre. A person living in that area would purchase his petrol at the distribution centre where he would get the most advantage. Petrol sold at Winton would attract a subsidy of 6id. The subsidy at the nearest place where there was a recognised distribution centre might be 7d. or 5d. a gallon. The subsidy at Middleton will be Hid. a gallon. Obviously, there must be a limit to the number of distribution centres.
