Senator SHEIL —I give notice that, on the next day of sitting, I shall move:

(a) That all Commonwealth Government Departments having extensive contact with the public, such as the Australian Taxation Office, the Departments of Social Security and Community Services and Health, install a toll-free telephone where that department is operating outside a telephone zone; and

(b) that the Departments advertise the toll-free number in the appropriate section of the telephone directory of that zone-so that when a Department has an office within a zone there is no need to advertise the toll-free number in that zone telephone directory but where an office has no office in the zone it should list a toll-free number in that zone.
