Mr IRWIN (MITCHELL, NEW SOUTH WALES) - My question is directed to the Postmaster-General. I refer to the notice given by the Director-General of Posts and Telegraphs, Sir John Knott, that he intends to retire in January. Will the Postmaster-General assure the House that consideration will be given to the claims of members of the postal services for appointment to the position of Director-General of Posts and Telegraphs? I know that the Postmaster-General is aware that many great men as administrators in the Post Office started off in the ranks as telegram delivery boys.

Sir ALAN HULME (PETRIE, QUEENSLAND) (Postmaster-General) - The answer to the honourable gentleman's question is: Yes, together with all other persons who might be eligible for consideration.
