Senator STORY (SOUTH AUSTRALIA) asked the -Minister re presenting the Postmaster-General, upon notice -

Has the attention of the Postmaster-General been directed to the matter referred to in the following extracts from the Adelaide Register of 27th July, 1910, and 3rd November, 1910 : -


Mr. CRUSHdrew attention to a letter from the Government Resident at Port Darwin in reference to the probability of the instalment of a wireless telegraph system between Port Darwin and Timor Dilli, which, he stated, if established would be of the utmost importance, especially from a commercial stand-point, as it would bring Port Darwin in close touch with the cattle and other markets in close proximity to Port Darwin ; and asked if the Government would indorse the scheme with a view to its being submitted to the Commonwealth authorities?

The ATTORNEY-GENERAL replied that he would indorse such a scheme. It seemed an exceedingly good recommendation.
