"GUILTY OF DEFAULT" Dissentients Not Paid Interest Canberra, October 7. Senator Sampson (U.A.P., Tas.) com-&lt;*> plained in the Senate today of the Government's failure to pay interest on securities held by dissentients in Government was guilty of default: no other interpretation of its action was possible.

There was nothing sinister behind the plan. It was the greatest credit to Australia that 97 per cent. of holders of Government securities were prepared to convert. The nation wouM pay princioal and interest at 20/ in the pound. If the Conversion Loan had not been a success, nob...
