Mr FORBES (BARKER, SOUTH AUSTRALIA) - Is the PostmasterGeneral aware that the efficiency of his department in rapidly expanding telephone services in country districts of South Australia, and the consequent rapid multiplication of exchanges, has resulted in the listing of many subscribers in the South Australian telephone book under exchange names that have no relationship to the postal addresses of the persons concerned? Is the Minister aware that this has made it almost impossible for persons without local knowledge to locate the telephone numbers of subscribers? Will the Minister consider the listing of country subscribers in South Australia in alphabetical order in the new edition of the telephone book, in addition to listing them under exchanges as at present?
