Mr DAVIDSON - A few moments ago the Prime Minister, in replying to a question from the honorable member for Mitchell, indicated that I had carried out an undertaking which I gave to this House that when I had a firm recommendation from the department on the use of shared services t would present it to the Government for determination. The Prime Minister pointed out that I had presented this information to Cabinet recently, and was good enough to say that 1 would myself announce the decision. I am, therefore, glad to be able to tell the honorable member for Bradfield, from whom I have not withheld any information that he has ever sought of me. that the department will continue to provide telephone services in local residential areas on the duplex basis. Therefore, the second part of his question relates, to something that will not arise.
