Mr NOCK (Riverina) .- There is a good deal in what has been said by the honorable members for Richmond (Mr. Anthony), Swan (Mr. Gregory) and Flinders (Mr. Fairbairn), in regard to this matter of preference to Australian insurance companies. It would be natural that Australian insurance companies should have preference provided there was no unreasonable margin over the rates of the English companies. The more business we have in government and the less government we have in business, the better for industry generally, and if, in order to assist industry, a board is brought into existence, the producers should be given control, and it is better that there should be as little governmental interference as possible either in chartering or insurance. [Quorum formed.]
