Senator READY (TASMANIA) - Has the Honorary Minister noticed a statement appearing in the press relative to the increase of steam-ship freights from Tasmania to the mainland ? Has he also noticed that on every route between Tasmania and the mainland freights have been increased except on those covered by the terms of the mail contract? Will he inform the Senate if any overtures have been made by the steam-ship companies for increasing the freights and fares in connexion with the routes covered by the mail contract?
