Mr DEDMAN - I agree that a great many hardships were imposed upon housewives during the war, but when it comes to a matter of the Commonwealth Disposals Commission making special provision of vehicles to tradesmen to deliver groceries, meat and other household' commodities to homes, I think the honorable member is suggesting something at variance with other suggestions made by Opposition members from time to time. En order to make' such a provision the Government would have to impose some new control upon the community, and 1 understand that honorable members opposite are among those who say that all controls should be lifted as soon as possible.

Mr Harrison - Nonsense !

Mr DEDMAN - I am expressing my own opinion; but I shall be very much surprised if the opinion of my colleague, the Minister for Supply and Shipping, whose attention I shall draw to this matter, is any different.
