Senator ALLAN MacDONALD -I direct the attention of the PostmasterGeneral to a telegram that I have received from Kalgoorlie as follows: -

Reference press report as to possibility of stopping lettergram service please stress necessity retention to Western Australia, as with occasional cancelled air mails, slow and uncertain overland mails, lettergram is the only reliable means of swift communication. Our disabilities from isolation bad enough now.

In view of that telegram, will the Post.masterGeneral give further consideration to the proposed cancellation of the lettergram service, which service is considered essential on the gold-fields of Western Australia ?

Suggest corrections
