Mr REID - The Postmaster-General will not be able to attend this afternoon until after the time for the asking of questions has elapsed, and I, therefore, ask honorable members who have notices of questions on the business-paper to postpone them until to-morrow. In reply to the honorable and learned member, I have made a statement as to the. fate of the tenders for the mail service, and the Postmaster-General will be glad to make a further statement as to any arrangements which have to be made consequent upon that, but as our decision was arrived at only on Thursday last, the matter may require a day or two's consideration.

Mr Higgins - It is a very urgent matter.

Mr REID - Everything is urgent.
