Mr BROWN asked the PostmasterGeneral, upon notice -

1.   Is it a fact, as indicated in the Sydney Daily Telegraph of the10th instant, that postal staff changes of a very radical and far-reaching character have been authorized in New South Wales?

2.   Is it true that those changes will entail considerable expense upon the Department, and discomfort and inconvenience upon officers, without insuring any adequate efficiency of the service in return ?

3.   In view of the fact that the grading of officers on which those changes are proposed was made during 1903-4 when the State was in conditions of drought, will he consider the advisableness of having this grading checked to date before insisting upon transfer of officers?

4.   In view of the serious manner in which those changes will affect the administration of the Federal Electoral Department will he consider the advisableness of allowing officers to retain their positions until after the work of the next General Elections has been completed?
