Senator CLEMONS (TASMANIA) (Ministerwithout portfolio) - The question, sofar as I have been able to follow it, israther complex. Dealing with the first part, let me assure the honorable senator, at whatever risk it may mean to myself, that I have not read the newspaper hi question to-day. With regard to questions without notice, I put it to the honorable senator that, unless they come within the category of urgent public business, it is desirable that notice should be given of them in due form. If he will put a notice on the business-paper, especially of that part of the question which deals with the attitude of the Ministry towards the Commonwealth Bank, he will get a fully considered answer, which at present I do not intend to attempt to give.
