Mr AUSTIN CHAPMAN asked the Postmaster-General, upon notice -

1.   Is it a fact that notifications are being sent to allowance post-office keepers in New South Wales cutting down by a few pounds their small allowances?

2.   With reference to the promise made in Parliament concerning the question of payments to allowance officers, has any action been taken?

3.   If so, will he inform the House with what result?

Mr WISE - The answers to the honorable member's questions are as follow : -

1.   The work of an allowance postmaster is reviewed annually, and payment for control is adjusted thereon. No reduction in payment is made unless the value of the work has decreased by an amount in excess of £3. The allowance postmaster is notified when any variation in the amount of payment is made.

2.   Yes.

3.   The matter is now under consideration of the Treasurer.
