Senator ANDERSON (NEW SOUTH WALES) (Minister for Customs and Excise) - Several days ago, when Senator Buttfield raised this matter, I promised to obtain some information for her. I have been informed by the PostmasterGeneral that firm engineering plans have been developed for the installation of radio telephone links connecting Andamooka and Cooper Pedy with the Australian communications network. The need for adequate telephone facilities at both these centres is recognised. It is necessary to fix transmitting and receiving sites and to provide the necessary buildings and special radio equipment. It is hoped to commence the work on both projects either late in the 1956-66 financial year or early in the following financial year.
