Sir LANGDON BONYTHON - Immediately after the adjournment of the House last month a paragraph appeared in the Melbourne Age which contained this statement -

It is the intention of the new PostmasterGeneral, Mr. Mahon, to order a strict investigation into the circumstances in which the construction of the telegraph line from Port Augusta to Tarcoola was ordered.

Has that investigation been made? Has the Minister called to his counsel the two South Australian members of the Cabinet ; and, if so, is he prepared to report the result ?
