THE prices of road tar are regulated by the Road Tar Prices (Inland) Order, 1942, which came into force to-day, and no person may sell or supply road tar otherwise than at the prices quoted in the Order. These are based on regional schedules and types of container employed, but they may be increased for the sale or supply of road tar in small quantities.

The material includes road tarbitumen mixtures containing up to 10 per cent. of bitumen, and the Secretary for Mines may fix an additional charge for such mixtures above the prices quoted in the Order. Proprietary brands sold under a mark on or before June 30, 1941, and approved by the Secretary, may be sold at an additional price not exceeding lid. per gallon, or, in exceptional cases men
