Mr L R JOHNSON (HUGHES, NEW SOUTH WALES) - In view of the fact that there are over 12,000 outstanding applications for telephone services in the Sydney metropolitan area, including more than 1,300 in my electorate, will the PostmasterGeneral indicate whether he considers the back lag is normal, or whether any special plans are in hand to alleviate the situation? If no special relief programme is contemplated, will the Minister ask the Treasurer for special financial assistance to facilitate a programme for the overtaking of outstanding applications in a prescribed period?
