AUSTRALIAN POLICY Wholesale Relaxing Of Wartime Restrictions N.Z. Press Association —Copyright Rec. 10 a.m. CANBERRA, this day. A wholesale relaxation of wartime controls has been announced by the Minister of Post-war Reconstruction, Mr. Dedman. The Minister said the controls affected were among those exercised by three big Departments—the Department of Post-war Reconstruction, the Departments of Supply and Shipping and the Department of the Navy. In addition between 30 and 40 controls in six other Departments would be revoked immediately, though they would not be announced before the end of the month. There would be no removal, yet, of the control over the delivery of household goods, said the Minister. The Government was very anxious that the delivery of household goods should be resumed at the earliest possible moment. However, the mere repeal of the order would not enable the goods to be delivered. Tyres and manpower shortages would continue to prevent deliveries, even if formal restrictions were removed.
