Mr J R FRASER - I ask the Minister for the Interior whether he will give early and full consideration to a suggestion, made editorially in the " Canberra Times " yesterday, that legislative provision should be made in the Australian Capital Territory to control the rates of interest charged under hire-purchase agreements. In giving consideration to that matter, will he have in mind the fact that new legislation in the State of New South Wales limiting rates of interest will come into effect on 1st July and will, of course, apply in townships and areas adjacent, or contiguous, to the Australian Capital Territory?
