Mr HAROLD HOLT (HIGGINS, VICTORIA) (Treasurer) - I can assure the House that a good deal has been done not only by the Decimal Currency Board but also by other government instrumentalities, including in particular the Department of Trade and Industry, and the banks which have been notifying their clients overseas of the change. The Department of Trade and Industry has included in its publications, which go all round the world, considerable detail about the changeover. Bulk supplies of the publications issued by the Decimal Currency Board have been sent overseas and the film " Dollar Bill " will be screened in Europe and other parts of the world. I am assured that the banking system is making extensive contacts in this matter and I understand that the Export Development Council is working on the preparation and distribution of a pamphlet to disseminate information on the subject. I believe that by the time the changeover occurs circulation of information about it in other parts of the world will have been widespread.
