Not So Mad Any­more

Reader's Digest Asia Pacific - - Letters -

Your story ‘It’s a Mad, Mad World’ (Au­gust) about crazy laws was very hu­mor­ous. How­ever, the very last crazi­ness men­tioned is out of date. The West Aus­tralian par­lia­ment passed an act re­peal­ing the Potato Mar­ket­ing Cor­po­ra­tion ef­fec­tive from De­cem­ber 31, 2016. DAVID SWAIN, MAN­JIMUP (POTATO-GROW­ING AREA), WA

Editor’s note: Our apolo­gies. The 1946 Act, which was re­pealed in 2016, made it an of­fence to be in pos­ses­sion of more than 50kg of po­ta­toes in Western Aus­tralia, un­less pur­chased from an au­tho­rised grower or re­tailer.
