Senator COLLINGS (Queensland) . - From time to time the unsatisfactory conditions existing at the Brisbane post office and at the post office a t Fortitude Valley, have been brought under the notice of the Government. The latter office which is very old, is some distance from the main shopping centre, which involves those conducting large retail emporiums in a great deal of expense in sending their parcels to the post office, or to a depot in the city.


Senator A J McLACHLAN (SOUTH AUSTRALIA) - This measure does not relate to works expenditure, and, therefore, the subject which the honorable senator has raised cannot be discussed at this juncture.


Senator COLLINGS - Can the PostmasterGeneral say whether it is a fact that there are no telephone facilities at North Ainslie, Canberra, where the residents numbering several hundreds, have to travel by car or send a messenger when they wish to communicate with a doctor ?


Senator A J McLACHLAN (SOUTH AUSTRALIA) - I have already undertaken to have inquiries made to ascertain whether better facilities than now exist can be provided at North Ainslie.
