Mr WATSON - I understand that some claim against the Victorian Government is being prepared by the Post Office authorities, in consideration of services rendered to the State. I am not aware of the details, or 'the grounds upon which the claim is made, because it has not yet come to me for presentation.

Mr Robinson - The claim is not being made in a spirit of revenge ?

Mr WATSON - Certainly not. The relations which have, so far, existed between all the States Governments and this Government have been of the most cordial description. We have had no reason to complain, nor do I think that this Government have given any cause for complaint by the States Governments.
