Mr DEAKIN (BALLAARAT, VICTORIA) (Minister for External Affairs) - The honorable member was good enough to inform me last evening that he proposed to ask this question, and I have, therefore, communicated with the post-office officials upon the subject. I was surprised, as he must have - been, to learn that the matter had not been finally dealt with- The information supplied to me is that the Department had satisfied itself of certain facts in the case, and had proceeded to take some action, when it was met by a legal difficulty, which was referred to the Commonwealth Solicitor for advice. That advice has been given, and action upon it will probably be taken upon the return of the Postmaster-General.
