Mr AUSTIN CHAPMAN - The answer to the honorable member's question is as follows : -

The practice with respect to closing telegraph offices cannot be said to absolutely agree in any two States, and no attempt has yet been made to insure uniformity in this respect. The alteration referred to was made in order that the hours of closing in South Australia on Saturday should be the same as on other week days, as it was found that closing earlier on that day had led to some inconvenience, and in all other States the hours of closing on Saturday are the same as on other week days.
