Mr WISE - The answers to the honorable member's questions are as follow : -

1.   I am making inquiries in the matter.

2.   Yes, when they are to hand.

3.   Telephone lines in country districts are at present erected as cheaply as efficient telephonic service and low maintenance costs will allow.

4.   Part XVIII. of the Telephone Regulations already provides for the erection of such lines by residents under the conditions the honorable member mentions, the only restriction being that permission shall not be granted for the erection of any such line along any public road, railway, or track unless the Deputy Postmaster-General is satisfied that it is in every respect unobjectionable, and that the consent of the railway and local authorities, where necessary, has been obtained.
