Mr ALLAN FRASER (EDEN-MONARO, NEW SOUTH WALES) - I ask the

Postmaster-General: Has he seen the new Australian5s. stamp showing a man on a horse chasing a bullock? Does he agree that the left front leg of the horse is at least 12 inches shorter than the right leg, that the horse has a club hoof and a turnedin leg and that its hind legs are those of an old man kangaroo? Does he further agree that the bullock has bothlegs joined at the knees and is glued to the horse's flank by its near leg? Has he seen this expression of view by the noted Australian artist, George "Finey? If so, will he examine this design with a view to the possible withdrawal of the stamp because it is arousing both laughter and ridicule amongst country people?
