Rationing of Petrol Position of Country Users PROTEST NOT FAVORED The alleged disadvantage of country dwellers in the matter of the distribu tion of petrol was stressed in a letter from the Margaret River Road Board read at the last meeting of the Gerald ton Municipal Council. The writer said that the Boa I'd was of the opinion that some protest should be made about [he distribution of petrol in outback areas. It had been pointed out that great difficulty was experienced by residents in such districts in obtaining petrol to take people to nearby centres for medical and hospital attention. Primary producers were curtailed in the use of petrol to a greater extent than ever before, yet petrol was made available for motor car and motor cycle races.

It might be explained that the grade of petrol used for such purposes was unsuitable for use in...
