Senator McLAREN (SOUTH AUSTRALIA) -Can the PostmasterGeneral say when the Mount Isa-Darwin microwave installation project will be completed and to what extent will services be improved for residents of the Northern Territory when the project becomes operational?


Senator BISHOP -I will be officially opening the new service on Monday, 26 August. From that date subscriber trunk dialling from Darwin will be operative, but it is not anticipated that

STD to Darwin from other centres will be available before late October or early November. The new systems protection bearer will be available for television relays to Darwin from Brisbane. It will also be available for normal relays from the Darwin studios to the proposed national television stations at Katherine and Tennant Creek, which are due to commence operation in the last quarter of this year.
