Mr COSTA (BANKS, NEW SOUTH WALES) - I desire to ask the PostmasterGeneral a question. The Postal Workers Union has been negotiating for a number of years with the object of having footwear issued to postmen to complete their uniform. The Postmaster-General realizes, no doubt, that postmen travel many miles each week on walking or bicycle rounds, and that as a result they are involved in heavy expenditure for the repair and replacement of footwear. Has the PostmasterGeneral yet made a decision in this matter? If he has, and if his decision has been favorable, when can postmen expect to be supplied with these overdue uniform components?
