Senator STEELE HALL (South AustraliaLeader of the Liberal Movement) - There is a remarkable lack of detail behind the explanation of the Postmaster-General (Senator Bishop). He just says that he would like to have permanent arrangements. I would like to know whether there is anything in what I have been reliably told, namely, that if the introduction of permanent arrangements is hastened hundreds of waterside workers at outports in Australia will have to be paid substantial retiring allowances but this will be obviated if the time factor is extended. That is a very pertinent factor if it is true. I would like to know how large in the argument is this financial aspect.
