Export To New Zealand Will Be Reviewed


Rec. 10 a.m. CANBERRA, this day,

The export of motor tyres from Australia to New Zealand is to be reviewed by the Commonwealth Government as a result of New Zealand increasing the petrol ration.

The Minister of Supply, Mr. Ashley, said the review would take place because of the acute tyre shortage in Australia. If New Zealand had sufficient tyres to enable her to allow vehicles to cover increased mileages, it should be possible to reduce her imports from Australia.

Slight increases in the petrol ration will be granted in Australia from September 1. Those who will benefit are private motorists, primary producers, taxis, pleasure launches and business people in the lowest mileage group. The Minister of Supply, Senator Ashley, in announcing the increases, said the shortage of tyres was unlikely to be relieved for many months. This was the reason larger petrol increases could not be given. The tyre position made it impossible for Australia to be as generous to motorists as New Zealand.

The petrol increases are 25 per cent to private motorists, 25 per cent to business motorists in the lowest mileage group, 15 per cent to primary producers, 25 per cent to private pleasure launches, and 15 per cent for taxis.
