Senator WALKER (New South Wales) . - I have two telephones, one in my office and the other in my private residence. Under the old rates I paid -£g per annum for my office telephone and £5 per annum for the instrument at my private address. But under the new system I have to pay £4 a year ground rent for each instrument and½d. per call. Under these circumstances, I wish to know whether I shall be credited with having paid in advance for so many messages?

Senator Findley - I shall be able to answer that question to-morrow.

Senator WALKER - I wish toconfirm the statement of Senator Gould that subscribers are frequently cut off in the middle of their conversations. The other day I was cut off for about three minutes. In such circumstances, shall I be charged for two messages ? It is a simple question, to which I shall be glad to have an answer.
