The increase in the price of petrol having now taken place, the policy of importing refined spirit through the Commonwealth Oil Refineries, Ltd., with distributive and storage facilities in all the States, will be inaugurated as soon as possible. The Federal Cabinet has considered methods by which it is hoped the Com- monwealth will be able to supply the bulk of the country's requirements at prices similar to those which are now being charged by the Commonwealth Oil Refineries. These include the im- portation of refined spirit in cases, and in bulk. The construction of large storage tanks at all State capitals, and at Fremantle in the case of W.A.

The Federal Capital Commission is to be asked also if it can supply this water without interference with the supply required for the town. The Council Work's Committee was instruct- ed to report immediately on the cost of changing the pipes in order to meet the demand of the railway.

AIR MAIL Melbourne to Fremantle in 36 Hours. NEW PROJECT PROGRESSING Progress has been made with the proposal of a private company to in- augurate a weekly passenger and mail service by aeroplane from Melbourne and Adelaide to Perth. The company's intentions were an- nounced in a recent issue and it is now likely that the service may be estab- lished at an early date. It Is consid- ered highly probable also that a sub- sidy similar to that enjoyed by other aerial mail services will be granted by the Federal Cabinet. The trip from Perth to Melbourne under the service will take 36 hours, 18 of which will be spent in the air, and it is expected that by leaving Perth at 9 o'clock on Tuesday morning, Adelaide would be reached at 2 o'clock on Wednesday afternoon, and Mel- bourne six hours later, thus enabling the overseas mail to be delivered four days earlier than under the present arrangement.   The director of postal services (Mr. H.
