Sir FREDERICK STEWART - In view of the statements published in today's issue of the Sydney Morning Herald that a record amount of almost £21,000,000 was spent on liquor in New South Wales last year, and that the consumption of both beer and wine in that period wasmuch greater than ever before, will the Minister representing the Minister for Trade and Customs supply a comparison of the monthly production and consumption of beer and wine in New South Wales during 1942 and the previous year? Will the Minister also state whether the reduction of liquor production which was announced by the Prime Minister has, in fact, been applied.

Mr Curtin - Yes, it has. I have prepared figures in reply to a question asked recently by the honorable member for Bourke (Mr. Blackburn), and these will be made available to the honorable member.
