Mr CASEY - The honorable gentleman is right. The original request made by the Federation of Malaya has been broadened to embrace a number of aspects of banking in the federation. The matter has been energetically pursued. Both the Prime Minister and I have been in touch with the Commonwealth Bank. Efforts are being made at this moment, and have been made for the last several weeks, to find an adequate individual, or, more probably, individuals, to help the Federation of Malaya in the general problem of setting up a modern system of banking there. I can assure the honorable gentleman that the matter has not been overlooked by any means. It is being energetically pursued, and we hope very much to be able to help the Federation of Malaya adequately in this matter.
