Mr WATKINS (NEWCASTLE, NEW SOUTH WALES) asked the PostmasterGeneral, upon notice -

1.   Are those post and telegraph masters who, in the State of New South Wales, have to perform' the duties of registrars of births, deaths, and marriages, and electoral registrars, to perform such work without being remunerated for doing so?

2.   Did the Public Service Commissioner, when grading and fixing the salaries of post and telegraph masters in New South Wales who have to perform the duties referred to in question 1, take those duties into consideration ?

3.   If not, will he, the Postmaster-General, see that arrangements are made for the payment of such postmasters for the extra work entailed upon them by having to perform- such duties?

4.   And will he see that remuneration is made to such postmasters for the four years they have been performing the above work without remuneration ?
