Mr PATTEN (for Mr. Austin Chapman) asked the Treasurer, upon notice -

1.   Is he aware that small settlers are charged 2 per cent. more by the Commonwealth Bank in the way of interest on small loans than that paid by large borrowers, and will the Treasurer make inquiries, with a view of trying to arrange that the Governor of the Commonwealth Bank will charge the same rate of interest to small land settlers as that charged to large corporations?

2.   What amount of Broken Hill mine debentures has been underwritten by the Commonwealth Bank, and what was the loss on same owing to the fall in values?
