Mr DAVIDSON - It is correct that, some time ago, the honorable member for Hughes directed a question upon notice to rae concerning the number of outstanding applications for telephones in his electorate, and that the information which he has just given was supplied to him. He has now asked me whether I will order an investigation into the matter of outstanding applications for the purpose of preparing, 1. understand, some form of developmental programme within the department. Of course, that is going on all the time in the department. The department is constantly keeping abreast of demands from various areas in Australia, and it now has a programme in operation which will at bast deal with all the applications for telephones. I suggest to the honorable member that the department can be relied upon to pay attention to the needs of his electorate, just as it pays attention to the needs of all other electorates in Australia.
