Senator GREENWOOD - I am sure that the honourable senator is aware of the debates which have occurred in this chamber in the not so distant past in which the whole question of what should be the appropriate postage rates for concessional material which is transmitted through the post has been extensively canvassed. I notice that the request is for free postage in a desirable area. One can only suppose that if free postage is granted for some articles, no matter how worthy the cause, there will be many other requests, so much so that the PostmasterGeneral will be inundated with applications for further exemptions. I say that by way of general comment, but I shall pass on the honourable senator's question to the Postmaster-General for his investigation and for a reply direct to the honourable senator.
