INCREASED PHOSPHATE PRICES. War Conditions Are Responsible THE heavy increases la the pricy of superphosphate approved by tlh: Commonwealth Prices Commissioner, Professor D- B. Copeland, :were made necessary because phospl:tatu rock, sulphur and bags' ar.m to ?a :lrge ex?? tent imported ifrom abricdl, ai?,d be cause of the war, ha r:. been silbject to heavy increases in landed costs over which the Commonwealth Gov' eminment has no control. The Commonwealth Prices Com missioner, realising the importance of the price of phosphate to prim'ary pro ducers, is makling a further survey to discover if any relief can be given i:a the next adjustment of prices Producers must remember however, that freights and war risk insurances may both rise in the immediate fn ture because of increased shortage of shipping space and the dangers to ships brought about by the inter national situation. The problem will be kept under con stant review and relief will be given: as soon as possible.

LESS THAN INCREASED COST [Newspaper Article] — Eltham and Whittlesea Shires Advertiser — 6 September 1940
LESS THAN INCREASED COST In these States the increased cost has not been so great. Before the increased price was de.;rled, stocks` of materials and b)ags bought at lowOf prices were taken into accbuntt. Con sequently the increase in phosphate prices allowed was actually less than the increase in the landed cost of the materials in Australia. The increases which have operated since July 1. are £1. a ton in Western Australia and Eyre Peninsula, 1.8/- a ton in New South Wales, Victoria andi South Australia. (other than Eyre Pe ninsl.n) and 13/- a ton is Tasmania.

REASONS FOR INCREASE [Newspaper Article] — Eltham and Whittlesea Shires Advertiser — 6 September 1940
REASONS FOR INCREASE The increased prices were approved only after an exhaustive examination of the added cost of naterials. These increases are due to increases in F'.O.B. prices in the country of export. hligher freight rates, heavy war risk insuralnce on Qhip.s and cargoes and in some cases increase in exchange rates. Increases in freight and insurances on phosphate rock, imported from Ocean Tsland in Nari, have amounted to approximately 30/ a ton since-the. outbreak of war and are respbnsible .for an increase of 18/ a ton in 'the pride of phosphate in Austi'alia lThe increased cost of bags and su4a phur have been responsible for an ,increase of 3/ a ton. Some States are entirely dependelit for their sulphur upon imported brim stole but in the Eastern States some of- the requirements have been met from Australian materials.
R.A.C.V. Is Non Political NO SELECTION OF CANDIDATES [Newspaper Article] — Eltham and Whittlesea Shires Advertiser — 6 September 1940
R.A.C.V. Is Non Political NO SELECTION OF CANDIDATES A? a result of inquiries having been received as to whether the R.A.C.V. Is endorsing any candidates for the Fed eral elcetion, especially as some are being supported by a recently formed motoring body, the R.A.C.V. has an nounced that it is following its estab lished policy and remains a strictly non-l)arty organisation. Motorists, the Club points out, include people of every -.hade of political opinion, and it would be placing an altogether dis proportionate emphasis on their motoring activities to ask that they 1 should change the political opinions of a lifetime over a single matter such as petrol rationing, however impiortant the subject may be from a motoring point of view. .It may be significant that, among the early candidates an nounced by this 'body, are prominent members of the Douglas Credit Asso clation: This does not mean that the Club is- politically inert. It has always been in the forefront of any movement to prot...
