Post Office receipts are estimated to increase by £13,969,000 to a total of £135,600,000 in 1960-61. The increase reflects not only the normal annual growth in Post Office business, but also receipts for a full year from the increases in Post Office charges imposed during 1959-60.

Broadcasting and television revenue is estimated at £12,130,000, or £1,670,000 greater than last year, mainly because of an expected increase in the number of television viewers' licences issued following the introduction of television in all States.

The estimated increase of £452,000 in Commonwealth Railways revenue in 1960-61 assumes that traffic, particularly goods traffic, will increase on the Trans-Australian and Central Australia Railways.
