Mr BEASLEY (WEST SYDNEY, NEW SOUTH WALES) (Minister for Supply and Development) - From time to time, I have read allegations of the kind mentioned by the honorable member. The matter was referred to quite recently in Sydney by the State Minister for Transport, and it was decided that inquiries should be made. I agree with the honorable member that, if. the reports are true, some action must be taken. I have asked the Fuel Board in each of the States to keep a very close watch on the position, and to do what is necessary to correct abuses. I shall await their reports with interest, and shall supply the honorable member with any relevant information which I receive.
