Mr CALWELL (MELBOURNE, VICTORIA) - I desire to give an example of how a question should be asked. I ask the Treasurer: Will he ascertain the truth of the claim that at least £75 million of bad debts is owing to hire purchase companies in Australia? If the claim is anywhere near the truth, will he ask his colleague, the Attorney-General, to examine again the banking power contained in the Constitution with a view to the introduction of legislation to regulate the activities of hire purchase companies?
