SenatorRAE. - Should I be in order in asking the Honorary Minister whether there is any reason why, providing the security is good, money should not be advanced to one concern or firm equally with another?

Senator CLEMONS - In answer to Senator Rae, I may say that I am not now, and do not ever hope to be, in the position of Governor of the Commonwealth Bank. The question he asks me is one which should be asked of the Governor of that institution. I cannot answer it.
