Sir Wilfrid Kent Hughes (CHISHOLM, VICTORIA) - I ask the Postmaster-General a question. What happened to cause the greatest mess-up of all time over the dispatch of Christmas mail to England? Who was responsible for the mail being delayed? Was there nothing in the contract with the shipping line to force it to take the mail or else pay a very heavy fine? Does the Minister realise the distress caused to a large number of people whose presents and mail will not arrive in England before Christmas, even though they complied with all the conditions of posting as advertised by the Postmaster-General's Department?
