Mr SPEAKER - There is no point of order.

Mr Uren - When are we going to get a fair go from the Government?

Mr SPEAKER -Order! The honourable member will resume his seat.

Mr HULME - I would have thought that this was a matter of real interest to the Opposition as well as to all members of the Australian public. Indeed, I think that members of the public are interested in the inconvenience which has been occasioned to them. What I was putting to the House was that the case by the Union included a request that all Post Offices which now close on Saturdays at from 10 a.m. to 10.30 a.m. be closed on Saturday mornings and that those that now close at 11 a.m. close at 10 a.m. This is not in accordance with the decision that the Government has made. I hope that the public will understand that the desire of the Government is to give service where service is really needed - on Saturday mornings in postal services.
