Mr BRUCE (Flinders) (Prime Minister and Minister for External Affairs) . - I spoke upon this matter at some length early this afternoon", therefore, all I need do now is remind the committee that the position held by Mr. Collins is that of adviser not only to the Commonwealth Government, but also to the Loan Council. His appointment to that position has been approved and endorsed by the whole of the States who are members of the Loan Council. If the honorable member for South Sydney (Mr. E. Riley) were to question any State Premier, he would be told that Mr. Collins renders most valuable services, and that for the flotation of Australian loans, it would be distinctly unfortunate if he were withdrawn from London.
