The company enclosed a long list of conditions which it requires its dealers to observe. Clause 4, to which reference is made in the letter, reads as follows: -

Any person may be considered to have indirectly contravened the company's conditions of trade if he-

(a)   Sells or supplies or offers to sell or supply recapped retreaded or reconditioned tyres at prices or upon terms either directly or indirectly different from those from time to time authorised by the Australian Retreaders' Association, or

(b)   In association with the sale or supply of the goods purchases second-hand tyre casings at prices directly or indirectly in excess of the maximum prices from time to time authorized by the Australian Retreaders' Association, or

(c)   Offers to sell or supply or suggests or infers by advertisement or otherwise that he will sell or supply the goods other than in accordance with the Company's published price lists and Conditions of Trade.

Clause 5 provides -

Any breach of observance by a Trader of the Company's Conditions and Terms of Trade will render the Trader ineligible for Volume Discount and supply will be made at Trade List Prices only.

I also have a copy of a letter under the letterhead of B. W. Loder & Company, Chartered Accountants, of 74 Pitt-street, Sydney, reading as follows: -

Tyre Manufacturers' Terms and Conditions of Trade. I am instructed to inform you that as from 2nd September, 1960, the following are no longer eligible for volume discount: - Ace Tyre Service - 89/93 Lambton-road, Broadmeadow. Lascoe Auto Sales - 111 Cabramatta-road, Cabrarnatta. Spence's Rubber Works - 151 Forestroad, Hurstville.

Yours faithfully,

B.   W. LODER,
