Mr COPE (WATSON, NEW SOUTH WALES) - 1 ask the PostmasterGeneral a question, which I preface by stating that during parliamentary sessions, usually in the company of the honorable member for St. George and the honorable member for Lyne, I catch the train scheduled to depart from Yass Junction for Sydney at 1.33 a.m. on Fridays. If the train happens to be running late, these honorable members and I assist the guard to load air mail letters on to the train in order to make up time. I ask the Minister: Is it a fact that the practice of sending first-class mail by train is not in keeping with the promise given when postal charges were increased some time ago?
