Mr CONROY (WERRIWA, NEW SOUTH WALES) - I should like to know from the Minister representing the PostmasterGeneral why certain small sums, due to contractors who have been performing work for the Post and Telegraph department, have not yet been paid ? Some time ago I mentioned two instances to the Minister, and I should like to know what is to prevent the Treasurer from making an advance, such as would permit of the payment of these men. I understand that the delay has been caused by the fact that the money will have to be paid out of loan funds.
