Senator PLAYFORD - The answer to the honorable senator's question is as follows : -

No. A reply has now been received to inquiries which were made on this subject. The Postmaster, Cooktown, reports that it is not true that public mails were refused to be carried by the Merrie England. He adds that the officers of that vessel are always most willing to take any mails tendered, and that two public mails were despatched by the Merrie England on the last three occasions she visited Cooktown.
