Mr HUGHES - I will answer the honorable member's question. I happen to have at this stage of the month a note, and I find that there is printed upon it the statement -

The Treasurer of the Commonwealth of Australia promises to pay the bearer One pound in gold on demand at the Commonwealth Treasury at the Seat of Government.

The Seat of Government for the time being is here, and the bank to which the honorable member refers was quite in order in refusing to cash the note.
