Mr FENTON - The honorable member intimated his intention to ask this question, and while I cannot give him full particulars, I have some information which may be of interest to him and other honorable members. In June, 1930, there were 520,169 telephone subscribers in the Commonwealth, and that total fell in December last to 487,850. During the past six months 26,863 telephones were disconnected, and 16,668 new connections were made, a net decrease during that period of about 10,000. For the six months from the 30th June to the 31st December, there were 32,319 cancellations. I shall obtain the figures for the various States, and supply them to the honorable member.
