Its deficit still mounts without comment, notice or consideration from either Parliament or people. Everybody seems agreed that the history of the new hank is going to lie long, and a few thousand pounds loss or gain in its first year are not going to count Despite strong opposition to the bank, Treasurer Forrest has been unable to gratify his desire and remove Federal public accounts from it. Nor is he able to hurt or interfere with it in any way. He can't do anything without raising a row, and Liberal Ministers want above 1 all thing to avoid rows. Sir. John remembers that the electorates voted for a Commonwealth Bank, that to close it up would cost money, and that in any case the Senate would never agree to amendments in the Commonwealth Bank Act.
