Mr DAVIS (DEAKIN, VICTORIA) - I ask the PostmasterGeneral a question. The Treasury Bulletin for October, 1958, states that the number of telephones connected during the preceding twelve months increased by 125,150 or 6.8 per cent. Is it possible to give the number of telephones connected in the rapidly developing outer metropolitan divisions, such as the electorate that I represent? Is it possible to give the number of outstanding applications, and the percentage as against installations, in that or other comparable divisions? Finally, is the PostmasterGeneral satisfied that, in relation to the finance available, sufficient attention is being given to the needs of the outer metropolitan districts?
