Sir WILFRID KENT HUGHES - I ask. the acting Minister for Trade whether any bankers' representatives are members of the new trade delegation to go abroad. Why did Commonwealth Bank representatives, rush off to Peking after the manager of the bank of red China in Singapore had wined and dined the banking representatives, on the last trade delegation? Is it a fact that the same manager of the same red bank told the bankers' representatives on that delegation that he would not discuss their visit to Peking, which he advocated, with the leader of the trade delegation because that leader happened to be a politician, namely, the Parliamentary Secretary to the Minister for Trade?
