Mr HULME (PETRIE, QUEENSLAND) (Postmaster-General) - Legislation of this Parliament requires that personal messages must be sent as first class mail matter. Matters which come under the commercial classification, such as recorded music on tape, poetry and that kind of thing, are not to be compared with personal messages. This is not only a requirement of Australian legislation but is also a decision of the International Postal Union. The principle incorporated in our legislation is also incorporated, I understand, in the legislation of nearly every country, and most countries are members of the International Postal Union.
