Mr HUGHES (WEST SYDNEY, NEW SOUTH WALES) - Has the attention of the Prime Minister been called to a paragraph in this morning's newspaper, in which it is stated that the passengers in one of the boats from the Aramac who called at a pilot station were refused permission to telephone from there without paying?" I am not aware that the facts are as stated, but if the statement be true, it reflects discredit upon the person in charge of the pilot station. I am certain that the Government would not tolerate such a thing.
