Mr DUTHIE (WILMOT, TASMANIA) - Is the PostmasterGeneral aware that the important underwater telephone cable between Victoria and Tasmania, via King Island, has been broken? As this cable was laid down in 1921, will the Postmaster-General have a thorough investigation of the cable made in order to ascertain whether its replacement, or extensive repair to it, is now necessary? What temporary arrangements are in hand to maintain reasonable telephonic and telegraphic communication between the Island State and the mainland?
