Mr FENTON (Maribyrnong) (PostmasterGeneral) . - I hope that the honorable member will not press this amendment to a vote. The amount of 12s. payable to the commission may be varied by either increase or decrease. Honorable members know that 12s. of the fee of 24s. goes to other sources than the commission, and we are hopeful that a reduction may he made in certain of those payments. I assure the honorable member that both the Government and I, as the responsible Minister, will study the interests of the listeners in every respect.
