§ 46. Mr. DENNISON
asked the Prime Minister if the oil companies have yet submitted a statement to the Government giving reasons for the recent increase of 2¼d. per gallon in the price of petrol; and, if so, will he inform the House of the contents of the communication?
§ The SECRETARY for MINES (Commodore Douglas King)
I have been asked to reply. The answer to the first part of the question is in the negative. The second part, therefore, does not arise.
