Mr MAHON - The answers to the honorable member's questions are as follow : -

1.   Yes; because the fourth delivery in Sydney was discontinued while the Department was under the control of the State Government, and so far as the Postmaster-General is aware no application had been made since the transfer of the Department for its restoration. .

2.   The mails from Melbourne arrive by- express train at the Sydney Railway Station at 10.43 a.m., and those from Brisbane and the North at n.S a.m., and the correspondence by both is delivered by letter-carriers at 12.45 P-m- Under these circumstances there is no unnecessary delay.
