Senator PEARCE - We have communicated with the Governor of the Commonwealth Bank, who has replied -

The Chinese in Australia, more particularly in Queensland, always cash cheques and notes for gold when theyhave remittances to make to China. In order to stop any undue export of gold in this manner, the Bank usually makes a charge on gold given to Chinese. The Governor does not know of any undue requests being made during the last three months.
