Mr GREGORY asked the PostmasterGeneral, upon notice -

1.   Whether it is a fact that the erection of a telephone from Bruce Rock to Korbel, Western Australia, a distance of 101/4 miles, exclusive of the cost of the erection of poles, cost, approximately, £500?

2.   Will the Minister lay on the table the details of this expenditure?

3.   Is it not possible for the Department to inaugurate some cheaper method of providing telephonic facilities in country districts?

4.   Where the residents erect their own wires for telephonic purposes, will the Minister approve of wires being laid on trees, fences, under roads, or in any manner suitable to those constructing it, providing they take all responsibility?
