Mr FENTON - Whilst the department is most anxious to provide the people of Flinders Island with the best possible postal service, it finds itself unable in existing circumstances to devote funds for securing more extended facilities than those at present provided. The honorable member is reminded that throughout the Commonwealth it has been necessary to curtail quite a large number of services because of the prevailing economic conditions. The department has recently concluded an arrangement to secure the utilization of all ships calling at Flinders Island, which guarantees a service not inferior to any it has previously been found possible to maintain.
