Mr BEASLEY - At a time like this, it is too much to ask that we should be satisfied with any situation, but I should like honorable members to know that the position in regard to petrol supplies is, at the moment, very satisfactory. However, it might alter at any time, and the Government is constantly on the watch. It is not too much to say that, for the time being, the position in regard to petrol is better than it has ever been in the history of Australia. However, apart from getting supplies to Australia, there is the problem of distribution within Australia, and in this connexion, the manufacture and distribution of petrol containers in various parts of the continent is receiving attention. In this regard, also, the Government has reason to be pleased with the position.
