Mr JACKSON (BASS, TASMANIA) asked the PostmasterGeneral, upon notice -

1.   What experiments have been carried out with a view to giving isolated settlers the benefit of cheap wireless transmitting sets for Morse code, and also for telephony?

2.   Is it a fact that the Australian Inland Mission has successfully experimented with a small set, costing about £50, which will send Morse code and receive ordinary broadcasting?

3.   Will he make provision in the immediate future for the installation of a similar set on Cape Barren Island, where about 250 people at present residing are often isolated for long periods owing to an unsatisfactory mail service?
