Mr DAVIDSON (DAWSON, QUEENSLAND) (Postmaster-General) - I am glad to be able to inform the honorable member for Isaacs and the House that, as a result of statement made from time to time that there have been delays in the transmission of mail to and from Canberra, the Postal Department is at the moment in the process of carrying out a most extensive survey of the time taken for mail sent from certain cities in Australia to reach Canberra, and of the time taken for mail from Canberra to reach various destinations in Australia. I expect within a week or so to have a very comprehensive report available, and I will be quite happy to let the honorable member, and other honorable members, study it. lt will disclose the true position and will cover the whole situation. It will not be concerned with just one or two incidents.
