Mr FENTON - On the 4th March, the honorable member for Dalley (Mr. Rosevear) addressed to me it question, without notice, as to whether applications for furlough, submitted by employees of the Postal Department, were being refused. Inquiries which I have made elicit, that, to a certain extent, the taking of furlough has been encouraged, especially during the acute period of depression and staff re-adjustment. It has been necessary, however, in particular branches and localities, to defer the taking of furlough where such a course would have given rise to additional expenditure in sending a relief officer.
