Mr LAVELLE (Calare) .- I desire to bring before the House an' important matter concerning the nondelivery of mails at the Wellington Hospital, in New South Wales. The question was brought under my notice, and I communicated with the Department. I have since been informed that the mails cannot be delivered to the hospital because it is beyond the postal boundaries. To-dayIhave received a letter from the secretary of the hospital, which reads -

Dear Sir,

Thecommittee and staff of the Wellington District Hospital, New South Wales, respectfully solicit your aid in helping themto get the mail delivered to the institution. It seems that before the present hospital was erected in 1902, there had been a postal boundary fixed, and the new hospital building lay just outside that boundary. The postal officials tell us that nothing can be done until the present building is placed inside the postal boundary. The hospital is already inside the municipal boundary. We have done our best toget this matter settled amicably, but cannot get any satisfaction, hence this appeal for your assistance.

Mr Bowden - I draw attention to the state of the House.

There not being a quorum present,

Mr.Deputy Speaker adjourned the House at 4.21 p.m.
