Mr ENGLAND (CALARE, NEW SOUTH WALES) - I direct to the Treasurer a question which relates to the Prime Minister's statement to the House last week, particularly to that portion of it dealing with rural finance. In reply to the honorable member for the Riverina last week, the Minister stated that he had already had discussions with the Governor of the Reserve Bank and that perhaps this week he would have discussions with some of the general managers of trading banks. In view of the vital concern of these talks to the whole of the Australian community, particularly to primary industry and that part of the community depending upon it. can the Treasurer give more definite indication of projected talks or can he forecast the time at which additional rural finance will become available?
