Mr FAIRBAIRN (FARRER, NEW SOUTH WALES) - My question is directed to the Postmaster-General and is supplementary to a question asked by the honorable member for Wimmera. Is he aware of the considerable unpopularity of the new country telephone books? Does he realize that a constituent of mine living in southern New South Wales can look up the number of a subscriber in Bairnsdale, but has to buy another book to look up the number of his next-door neighbour who lives 300 yards away? As most businessmen in country areas either have to use about three of the new books or one old book - and many of them have decided to use the latter - will he revert to the old system when directories are next printed?
