Mr HAROLD HOLT (HIGGINS, VICTORIA) (Treasurer) - I have not had occasion previously to consider this matter of policy which the honorable gentleman has raised. I should need to be persuaded, first that this was a matter in which the Commonwealth Government should take a positive stand and, secondly, that there are powerful reasons why the inconvenience to which this proposal would subject the public should apply more generally than is thecase at present. I am not in a position to give a conclusive reply to the question now, but I shall examine it.
