Mr DEPUTY SPEAKER (Mr McGrath - I have given the honorable member the same latitude as I extended to the honorable member for Warringah (Mr. Parkhill) in respect of a discussion on the Government Savings Bank of New South Wales. I now request the honorable member to confine his remarks to the bill.

Mr JAMES - I submit that I am in order in discussing the Government Savings Bank of New South Wales, because this bill affects pensioners who have deposits in that institution. I wish to know why the Commonwealth Bank is insisting upon taking over the control of the Government Savings Bank? I support the measure, and I hope that shortly a further measure will be introduced to enable this bank to regain its former stability.
