Mr DAVIDSON - This is a question to which the honorable member for Ryan has already applied himself and I am now in a position to give him a little more information about it than I was able to supply previously. Hitherto, the system of using district numbers has applied only in Melbourne and Brisbane and it has not been as successful as was hoped when it was instituted. Therefore, as I notified the honorable member a little while ago, it is being discontinued. It is being discontinued also partly because of the fact that improved sorting facilities now make the use of district numbers unnecessary, but we are still proceeding with some further experiments in this direction in the Melbourne General Post Office. If those experiments indicate the desirability of reverting to this system, we shall do so.
