Senator ASHLEY (NEW SOUTH WALES) (Minister for Information) - I shall certainly make inquiries as to the reason for the mail being delivered other than in a sealed bag. As to the irregularity of mail services, I point out that, like other Government departments, the Postal Department is severely taxed owing to war conditions. In the circumstances I do not hold out any hope of improved postal services being provided. I fear that people in remote places, as well as in metropolitan districts, will have to put up with the inconvenience of irregular mail services, and regard it as a small contribution to the country's war effort.
