Mr HULME - I seek the indulgence of the House to give some supplementary information in reply to two questions asked of me this week. In answer to questions asked by the honourable member for Gwydir and the honourable member for Bennelong in relation to rewards for information leading to the conviction of anyone found damaging public telephones I might have inadvertently given the impression that rewards were not paid. I had the impression that the two honourable members who asked the questions were seeking some special or additional rewards in view of the recent high incidence of damage to telephone instruments. A reward of up to $40 is paid for information leading to conviction of persons damaging any property of the Post Office, not only public telephones. I thought I should make this brief statement to put the record straight.
