Mr TURNBULL (MALLEE, VICTORIA) - As the PostmasterGeneral is aware, widespread and frequent applications are made for the installation of rural automatic exchange units. Is the restricted supply of these units the cause of many such applications being refused or is it the lack of finance available to the department? If the former reason is the cause, are supplies available overseas? If the latter, will the profit of £4,000,000 said to have been made by the department overcome the difficulty?
