Mr JOHNSON (LANG, NEW SOUTH WALES) - I "wish to know from the Acting Postmaster-General if the Department proposes to take . legal proceedings against those who improperly, and without authority, recently sent through the post a private publication, known as the Dairy Farmer and Agricultural News, bearing on its wrapper the imprint "O.H.M.S." Is it usual for the officials of the Department to permit private publications enclosed in wrappers bearing that imprint to pass through the post merely because they contain the advertisement of a State Government? If so, will the same privilege be extended to all privatelyowned newspapers in which the advertise ments of States Governments appear, irrespective of the political views advocated by those newspapers? Was the publication in question charged the usual rates of postage? Lastly, is the honorable member prepared to answer the questions on. the subject which I asked yesterday?
