Senator ALLAN MACDONALD (WESTERN AUSTRALIA) . - I direct attention to the item, Air Mail Services £79,000, and ask the Postmaster-General to give urgent consideration to requests which my colleague, Senator Collett, and 1 have made for an improvement of the air mail service to the north-west of Western Australia. This service is governed largely by the arrival of the overseas air mail at Daly Waters. Would it not be possible to institute a double service overseas, thus improving the air mail from Daly Waters to Perth and giving residents of the north west portion of Western Australia an opportunity to transact their business under more satisfactory conditions? The Minister is well aware the difficulties under which these pioneer settlers are carrying on their operations, so I need not stress them again. . I hope that it will be possible to give the people living in that part of Western Australia a better service than they have been receiving since the expiration of the contract with Western Australian Airways Limited.
