Mr GLYNN (ANGAS, SOUTH AUSTRALIA) - I desire to ask whether it is not a fact that telephonic communication has been denied to many country districts upon the ground that the work would not pav ?

Mr AUSTIN CHAPMAN - In reply to the honorable and learned member I wish to say that it is not a fact. Applications for the granting of telephonic communication to any locality are dealt with upon their merits, and the practice of the Department has been, and is, that if it can be shown that the erection of a telephone line is likely to pav at any time within seven years, it is willing to provide the facilities sought, upon reasonable conditions.
