Mr SYDNEY SMITH (MACQUARIE, NEW SOUTH WALES) (Postmaster-General) - In reply to my honorable friend. I have to state that I believe that, with one or two exceptions, the whole of the contracts have been transferred. I gave direct instructions that the decision arrived at was to be carried out forthwith as to those which had not been transferred. I asked for a return as to the reason why steps had not been taken by the contractors to transfer practically in accorddance with their own proposals; and I told them that I would have no departure from the decision arrived at.
