Mr BRUCE - The replies to the honorable member's questions are as follow : - -

1.   I am aware that a company known as the Commonwealth Oil and Grease Proprietary Limited is trading in Melbourne, and I assume that it was registered before the passing of the Victorian Act known as the Companies (Names) Act 1926, which forbids the registration of any company under a name which includes the word " Commonwealth " or any other word signifying Government support or patronage, unless the consent of the Governor in Council has first been obtained.

2.   The Government is not prepared to recommend such a change.
