Mr DUTHIE (WILMOT, TASMANIA) - In view of the importance to Tasmania and Australia of the Tasmanian vehicular ferry, which is the first of its kind in Australia, will the PostmasterGeneral consider striking a special stamp to commemorate the inauguration of this unique service in October or November of this year? Is the Postmaster-General aware that such a stamp would give Australia world-wide publicity through the philatelists' associations in many countries? I might mention that Charles Ramsay, the Tasmanian historian, thought of this scheme and that both the honorable member for Braddon and myself have been approached to put the matter before the Minister.
