Senator GIBSON (Victoria) .- A number of mail contracts are carried out in Western Australia and the Northern Territory by owners of camel teams, some of which travel a distance of 700 miles. I suggest that, when the time comes to renew these contracts, alternative tenders be invited with a view to extending the air mail service to districts which, at present, are served . by camel teams. If this were done, it is probable that a number of landing fields would be established at out-stations, thus improving the facilities for inter-communication by air.
