Mr HUNT (GWYDIR, NEW SOUTH WALES) - I direct my question to the Postmaster-General. Owing to the high cost of trunk calls in country areas and its adverse effect on decentralisation of industry and on rural producers, especially as a result of the extended local service area zoning system, can the PostmasterGeneral give any indication as to the possibility of introducing a flat unit call charge for local and trunk calls within the States? What would the unit call charge be in such circumstances for trunk and local calls on a time basis?
