Senator MILLEN (New South Wales) . - I should like to ask the Minister what arrangements have been, or will be made for the conveyance of the heavier mail matter from Adelaide, Sydney, Melbourne, and Brisbane?


Senator Sir Josiah Symon - There is the railway service.


Senator MILLEN - That is so, but I understood the Minister to say that there was a serious objection to the cost of carrying the heavier mail matter from the terminal port in Southern Europe across that Continent. I imagine that the same drawback would operate in the transport of the heavier mail matter from Adelaide to Sydney, Melbourne, and Brisbane. At all events. I ask the Minister what arrangement is to be made for the conveyance of the heavier portion of the mails eastward from Adelaide?
