Mr ROSEVEAR (DALLEY, NEW SOUTH WALES) - I wish to ask a question of the Minister for War Organization of Industry in relation to a statement which he made in this House on the 4th March in reply to an interjection, the essence of which was that rationalization was not being applied to the Commonwealth Bank. The Minister said, "' No, because -the Commonwealth Bank is in an entirely different position from any of the other banks ". Is it a fact that three banks are operating at Barellan in New South Wales, and that the only one which has been rationalized out of existence is the branch of the Commonwealth Bank? Has the honorable gentleman's policy with regard to the rationalization of the Commonwealth Bank been reversed, and when ' can we expect the rationalization of the private banks to be finalized ?
