Mr SHEEHAN (COOK, NEW SOUTH WALES) - I ask the Minister for War Organization of Industry whether a reduction of the price of bread was declared on Monday in respect of a very small portion of the metropolitan area of Sydney; whether the declaration was -made because zoning of bread deliveries had been instituted in such areas; and whether the allocation of the zones has militated very seriously against bakers -who are not members of the _ zoning committee, particularly in the Balmain district, who can obtain neither redress nor an adjustment of their zones? Is the honorable gentleman aware that some bakers have been allocated such zones that their deliveries have been - reduced by nearly 1,000 loaves a week, and that the reduced prices are operating on one side of the street but will not operate on the other side until the 1st June next?
