Mr Lloyd asked the Minister for Post and Telecommunications, upon notice, on 20 October 1977:

What action is he or Australia Post prepared to take to ensure that mail is delivered to every Australian irrespective of his political or trade union attitude.

Mr Eric Robinson (MCPHERSON, QUEENSLAND) -The answer to the honourable member's question is as follows:

The policy of the Postal Commission is to provide the best possible mad service to all users. It views with concern any action by Commission employees which disrupts or denies services to communities or particular individuals and organisations. Whenever such action is taken the Commission attempts by direct negotiation or by reference to the Conciliation and Arbitration Commission to resolve the problem as quickly as possible.

I am kept closely informed by the Commission of any action which disrupts or denies services. In every case the Commission has taken some positive action to resolve the matter and has taken those actions with my support.
