Senator SCOTT - My question is directed to the Minister representing the Prime Minister. In view of the evidence submitted to the royal commission on petroleum in Sydney last week emphasising the critical fuel supply position throughout the country, will the Minister undertake that the Government will use its maximum influence to ensure an urgent increase in supplies, in particular of distillate and gasoline to secure full scale operation in harvest, soil preparation, sowing, factory and council operations in the immediate and continuing future?

Senator MURPHY - I shall refer the question to the Prime Minister so that he may answer it if he thinks that any further answer needs to be given than the information which I have just received from the Minister for Agriculture who has told me that an announcement has been made by one of the major oil companies- the Shell company- that adequate supplies are available.
