Senator ASHLEY (NEW SOUTH WALES) (Minister for Information) - The honorable senator notified me that he intended to ask this question, and I have obtained a reply. There is no breakdown in telephone communication between the mainland and Tasmania, but it was reported to me this morning that the lines between Canberra and Melbourne have been interrupted intermittently. This is due to certain line trouble at Wagga, but contact with Melbourne has been maintained by routing calls through Sydney. Work to effect the necessary repairs is in progress.
