Mr MENZIES - I do not entirely under stand the honorable member's question It seams, if I may say so, to be very argumentative. I gather that he wants to know whether the next conference with bankerwill be held because of the failure, o> success, of the previous conference. I must say that I thought our previous conference was very helpful indeed, as was the conference that I had with representatives oi the hire-purchase finance organisations. I do not. when I am deciding whether to hold a conference, say that the last one was a failure so I must try again; or thai the last one was a success and therefore I need not have another. Most of 0U problems deserve regular discussion, and I propose that this should take place whenever I have the opportunity. It would be very bad luck if we were dissuaded b> one failure, because if that were so the conference behind the Speaker's chair between the deputy leader on each side would happen once, and never again.
