Mr PETERS (SCULLIN, VICTORIA) - I ask the Prime Minister whether he is again calling representative's of the private banking institutions into conference because the conference held with them, towards the end of last year, and with representatives of the hire-purchase organi zations, was a glorious success? Or is the proposed conference being held because the last one was a disastrous failure? If the last conference was successful, will the Prime Minister tell honorable members U> what extent it resulted in the restraint of inflation, or the restriction of hire-purchase operations? If the previous conference wa> a disastrous failure, will he tell honorable members what reason he has to expect a change of heart and attitude on the pan of the private banking institutions?
