Mr POYNTON (GREY, SOUTH AUSTRALIA) - Is the PostmasterGeneral aware that letters are still being sent out from his Department to the effect that there is to be a reduction of mail services and of subsidy? If so, is that policy to be continued ?

Mr SPENCE - I am not aware that such letters are being sent out; they do not go from the Central Office.

Mr Poynton - I saw one on Friday.

Mr SPENCE - In a number of cases, a reduction of mails was necessarily arranged for, and, as to these, some consideration will be given.

Mr Page - What relief will those people get if you stop part of their subsidy?

Mr SPENCE - They will get relief from the special appropriation.

Mr Page - When?

Mr SPENCE - Immediately.
