Sir EARLE PAGE (COWPER, NEW SOUTH WALES) - Can the Minister representing the Postmaster-General say whether, in view of the grave dislocation of mail services in northern New South Wales from the Hunter River to the Queensland border as a result of disastrous floods and the reduction of the number of trains due to coal shortage, the Postmaster-General will maintain the carriage of first-class mail matter by the various air services which function along the North Coast route? By way of explanation, I point out that, as a result of representations which I made on Sunday last, the Postmaster-General's Department agreed to have mails carried by air during the next two or three days. I now ask that the air services be continued for the full period of the present dislocation.
