Mr WISE - On the 1st instant the honorable member for Darling (Mr. Blakeley) asked me the following questions : -

(a)   The number of postmen and assistants of the Mail Branch, New South Wales, who have, during the past three years, submitted medical certificates of illness through tubercular troubles?

(b)   The number of postmen and assistants in the same branch who have died during the past three years owing to tubercular complaints?

I promised that the information would be obtained. The following is the reply: -

Five postmen and eight assistants submitted medical certificates of illness through tubercular troubles; two postmen and three assistants died of complaint.

These figures are approximate. The expense of examining the records of all officers concerned in order to obtain the actual figures would not, I think, be justified.
