Mr WARD (EAST SYDNEY, NEW SOUTH WALES) - Does the Prime Minis- ter consider it proper and conducive to the continuance of confidence in our parliamentary institutions for financial assistance to be granted to companies in which the wives of Cabinet Ministers are large shareholders?

Mr LYONS - I have no knowledge regarding that matter. I should he glad if the honorable member would place his question on the notice-paper, and mention instances which he has in mind, so that they may be investigated.

Mr WARD - In view of the attitude of the Government, as expressed by the Prime Minister, that no member of the Cabinet should continue to allow to exist a set of circumstances in which his public duty conflicts with, his private interests, I ask the Attorney-General if he is able to advise the House as to the directorates which he held previously and subsequently relinquished, and those which he atp resent retains?
