Senator KEATING (TASMANIA) (Ministerwithout portfolio) - Personally, I see no reason why the city of Adelaide and suburbs should stand in a different position from other capital cities in the Commonwealth. The whole question of an approximation to more uniform rates of postage has been under the consideration of the Cabinet for some time, and very shortly I shall be able to bring the result of our deliberations before the Parliament and the public.

Senator Sir JOSIAH SYMON - Will the Minister make a special point of inquiring as to the desirability of giving, at an. early date, if possible, this concession to Adelaide in common with the other capital cities?

Senator KEATING - Certainly.
