Mr JAMES (HUNTER, NEW SOUTH WALES) - Has the Minister representing the Minister for Supply and Shipping read in the newspapers an advertisement which reads-

Parachutes containing approximately 50 square yards of material, coupon free, suitable for dresses, curtains, underwear, shirts, sheets; also tents,&c. Send £2 Disposals Trading Co., Box 4656, G.P.O., Sydney, or call at1a, Herbertroad,Edgecliffe, Sydney:

In some instances, the advertisement states that if purchasers are not satisfied with the goods that they receive their money will he refunded. In view of the dissatisfaction of some purchasers because of the shoddy goods that have been forwarded to them, are any means open to the Government to prevent private concerns from using the word " disposal ", particularly when disposing of exgovernment stores, thus giving the impression that the goods are being offered by a government instrumentality ?
