Senator PAYNE (Tasmania) .- I understand that a new contract is to be entered into next year for mail services to New Guinea. I ask the Minister to give very special consideration to the need for ensuring that the new service will not be inferior to that provided at present. Having in mind the increasing importance of the territory, improved mail facilities should be made available. New Guinea has reached a state of development which justifies an improved mail service, but at all events it would be a retrograde step if there were anything in the new contract that might reduce the existing standard of the service.
