Senator CHATAWAY (QUEENSLAND) - I wish to ask the Vice-President of the Executive Council, without notice, a question having reference to a matter which formed the subject of a question I asked in 1907. The same trouble appears to' have cropped up again. Are the Government aware that cheques for the payment of bounty to growers of sugar cane with white labour have been recently dishonoured? If so. will the Government take steps to so arrange their banking business as to prevent this recurring, and thus giving farmers the trouble of presenting cheques more than once before they receive payment?
