Mr WISE (GIPPSLAND, VICTORIA) (Postmaster-General) - The answers to the honorable member's questions are as follow : -

1.   Yes, as throughout the Commonwealth.

2.   The Department could not expect officers, particularly non-official postmasters or telephone office-keepers, to give their services free after ordinary office hours, and the opening of all the offices from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. would entail considerable expense for extra assistance or overtime. The matter, however, is being considered.
