Mr THOMAS (BARRIER, NEW SOUTH WALES) - I wish to ask tha Postmaster-General whether any step is being taken to bring about the nationalization of the Atlantic cable, so that we may have at least one State-owned cable between England and Australia. If that were done we should be able to send lettergrams and other messages on our own terms, instead of having to ask for concessions from a private company.
