■ SPECIAL TELECOMMUNICATIONS FACILITIES .

. FOR M.C.C. TOUR >

The Postmaster-General (Mr. Davidson), announced today that

special arrangements have been made by the Post Office in collaboration with

the Overseas Telecommunications Commission (Aust.) for the handling of the

inland and overseas telegraph traffic lodged in connection with the forthcoming

M.C.C. tour in Australia. N

At cricket grounds where the various matches are to be played

a Telegraph Office will be established for the rapid transmission of

telegrams. Where justified by the traffic load, telegrams for overseas

countries will be forwarded by teleprinter direct from the grounds to the

Sydney office of the Commission, for relay overseas.

Mr. Davidson added that special arrangements have also been

made to handle the anticipated heavy lodgment of phototelegrams during the tour.
