Senator ASHLEY (NEW SOUTH WALES) (Minister for Information) - It is the intention to proceedwith the installation of additional telephone and telegraph channels between Adelaide and Perth as soon as the necessary materials are available. Due to the effect of war-time conditions on deliveries and the need for giving priority to important defence communication requirements, some little time will elapse before all the materials required for this large project can be secured. Work has, however, already commenced on certain sections, and it is hoped to undertake the main portion during the early part of 1942. The importance of augmenting the existing facilities between Perth and Adelaide is fully recognized, and the honorable senator may rest assured that the work will be completed at the earliest possible date.
