Mr JAMES - Will the PostmasterGeneral indicate the method adopted in arriving at the estimated revenue of public telephones before such instruments are installed? When an application is made for a public telephone, the department, in some mysterious manner, estimates the revenue likely to be derived. Does the Postmaster-General propose to adhere to the present policy, or will he endeavour to see that public telephones are erected to give service to the people, instead of allowing decisions based on estimated revenue to stand in the way?
