Senator FINDLEY (Victoria) (Honorary Minister) . - When there are two places bearing the same name in different parts of the Commonwealth, and it is possible to bring about a change, changes are being made as expeditiously as possible. But, of course, the Commonwealth Government cannot change the names of places at its own sweet will. We have power to alter the names of post-offices ; but it would never do to alter the name of a postoffice without altering the name of the place where the office was situated. Whenever the Department can induce local people to change a name in order to avoid duplication, that is done.
