RETURNING a call to the office of a leading banker yesterday afternoon when Financial Secretary Sir Hamish Macleod was in Budget mid-stream, Keeping Posted, hearing a TV on in the background, casually inquired of the banker whether or not he was pleased with what he was hearing from Sir Hamish.

''I can't say, to be honest,'' he chipped rather disarmingly. ''I've got the Bob Hope Golf Classic on.'' How sensible.
