Mr DAVIDSON - I have already dealt, in this chamber, with this debatable question of the profit of £6,000,000 in the Post Office in the last financial year. I do not propose to go further into that matter now in response to the question. I can assure the honorable member for Gellibrand that the financial position of the Post Office is not such as would enable it to carry out his suggestion. The provision of free telephones for the blind has been considered on a number of occasions and by a number of administrations. I have recently looked at the question myself, but I am afraid that 1 cannot offer any hope to the honorable member that we will be able to institute that service in the near future.
