Senator PEARCE - On the 17th March, 1927, Senator Hoare asked the following questions : -

1.   Is it customary for the employees of the Common wealth Bank, within the area of the capital cities of the Commonwealth, to be given the privilege of attending during working hours the annual show held within those cities?

2.   If such a privilege hasbeen granted to some employees, why has it not been extended to the Commonwealth Bank employees of Adelaide?

The Commonwealth Bank has now furnished the following information: -

1.   No.

2.   It may be explained that, in Sydney, the annual show synchronises with the Easter holidays. In the other capital cities, with the exception of Adelaide, a public holiday is proclaimed for show clay. The employees of the Commonwealth Bank in all capital cities, excepting Adelaide, thus have facilities for attending the annual show, should they so desire, but this does not arise from any discrimination on the part of the bank between its employees in the different capital cities.
