Mr WHITLAM - I direct a question to the Treasurer. The right honorable gentleman will recall that last November, in answer to a question by me, he indicated that he would examine the possibility of regularly publishing statistics to show movements in unexercised borrowing limits approved by the trading banks, in the same way as such figures are already compiled and published in Canada and New Zealand. I ask the Treasurer: What has been the result of his examination? Does he intend to publish such information, and is he considering any other steps to overcome the weaknesses in the overdraft system in Australia?
