Mr KEANE (BENDIGO, VICTORIA) asked the Prime Minister, upon notice -

1.   Whether the agreement between the Government and the Anglo-Persian Oil Company provides for that company to supply crude oils to the Commonwealth Oil Refineries at current market prices, and to charge freight on crude oils shipped to the Commonwealth Oil Refineries at prevailing freight prices?

2.   Whether, in view of the fact that the Anglo-Persian Oil Company has the majority of directors in the Commonwealth Oil Refineries, any steps have been taken by the Government to ascertain whether oil prices and freight charges as fixed by the AngloPersian Oil Company to the Commonwealth

Refineries are fair and reasonable prices, and approximate to world parity for crude oils and world's prices for freight on bulk oils?
