Mr DEAKIN - I have been informed that-

1.   The Postmaster-General is not aware that the Deputy Postmaster-General of Victoria has refused to recognise associations in the PostmasterGeneral's Department when acting within their proper sphere, or that he has declined to forward any communications that have been regularly submitted and properly expressed. It is understood that a communication contravening Public Service Regulation 38 has been received by the Deputy Postmaster-General, but has not been sent forward to the Postmaster-General. No appeal has, however, been made to the PostmasterGeneral as to any action of the Deputy Postmaster-General in connexion with these matters by any association or officer.

2.   If it ia alleged that the rights of the men are infringed, the Postmaster-General will consider any representations in that regard which may be made to him through . the proper channel.
