Mr LYONS - The States fix the prices of flour and bread, the responsibility of the Commonwealth being confined to a collection of the excise tax in the manner prescribed, plus, of course, the- fixing of the price of bread in the Australian Capital Territory! I am informed that the price to-day in New South Wales is 5½d. a 2-lb: loaf over the counter. That price, I understand, was proclaimed last evening. In Victoria, the price, delivered, is 5^d., but that price has not yet been proclaimed, nor has the Queensland price yet been proclaimed. In South Australia thu prices are 5d. over thi; counter and 5 Jj. delivered. No advice has yet been received as to the prices in Western Australia and Tasmania.
