Senator SAMPSON (TASMANIA) - With reference to the statement made by the Leader of the Government in the Senate on the 13th instant with regard to Tasmanian shipping communications, will the right honorable gentleman say whether it is the intention of the Government, irrespective of the state of the tide and weather conditions, to make it obligatory that the vessels of the shipping company carrying out the proposed now mail contract shall make their terminus a point on the river Tamar, in the vicinity of Rosevears, and not Launceston ; and if so, whether the Government's decision is in conformity with the report of the Public Accounts Committee?

Senator Sir GEORGE PEARCE - The honorable senator's question should have been directed to the Minister representing the Postmaster-General, but I shall see that the information he requires is obtained and supplied to him.
