Senator A J McLACHLAN (SOUTH AUSTRALIA) - The cutting of trees adjacent to telephone lines is restricted to such timber as can be regarded as an interference to communication services. Where lopping of limbs would suffice to prevent the likelihood of interference, removal of the trees is not permitted, and officers of the department have been given strict instructions that no unnecessary cutting or lopping is to be carried out.

Senator Marwick - That has not been the case in the past.
