Mr FORDE - In view of the great importance to the unemployed and the commercial community of the Prime Minister's statement at Wollongong on Saturday, that the Government would have to consider using the credit of the country to relieve unemployment, and get away from the old system of borrowing, I should like to know whether the Government intends that the credit resources mentioned by him should be made available by the private banks, by the Commonwealth Bank, or by both? Further, by what other method does he expect that credits for the relief of unemployment may be made available, and when?
