Senator PAYNE (Tasmania) . - I endorse the remarks of Senator Herbert Hays respecting allowance postmasters Any one whose business takes him into the outback district cannot but appreciate the valuable services that they are rendering to the community. I am glad that this year something is being done for them. An increase of about 20 per cent, being made. If post offices were not provided in the outlying districts of this country the development of those areas would be retarded. These officers are entitled to every consideration.

Suggest corrections
