Banks and Exchange Rates [Newspaper Article] — News — 30 July 1923
Banks and Exchange Rates In view of the recent unfavorable criticism in London of Australian and New Zealand banks on the question of exchange rates within the Empire, it -s interesting to note some comments by Sir George Elliott, chairman of direc tors of the Bank of New Zealand, at the annual meeting of proprietors. He pointed out that, as was the case with other Australasian Banks, their funds were accumulating in London to an ex tent much in excess of requirments, and at present they were unable to transfer even, a portion of the surplus to New Zealarnd, except at a heavy loss. Exports continued to exceed imports, and 'in the interest sof the Dominion it was hoped that such a position might long continue, but so long as it existed exporters must expect to pay higher rates of exchange than they had been accustomed to.

Duty on Sulphur [Newspaper Article] — News — 30 July 1923
Duty on Sulphur South Australia is peculiarly interested in the decision of the Federal Government to introduce legislation for the abolition of the duty on sulphur and to grant a bounty on its manufacture. Some time ago there was a good deal of adverse comment in Victoria because both South Australia and Western Australia had received a big concession in the duty and were only paying 10 per cent. ad valorem, or about 7/ a ton, while the comijanies operating in the eastern States were called upon to pay the full extent of the duty, namely, £2 10/ a ton.

HIowever, the concession to South 5Australia will end about October or Novem ber, when the Electrolytic Zinc .Company, which is; now completing the erection of a, zine iroasting plaint at Port Pirie, will supply sulphuric acid to the Adelaide Che...
