Senator KEATING (TASMANIA) - I wish to ask the Minister representing the PostmasterGeneral, without notice, whether he noticed recently that some twelve or fourteen days after the steamer Wauchope was supposed to have left King Island for Melbourne no news was obtained as to whether she had actually left, or was still there. There was consequently great deal of alarm in the community. Is the Minister aware that there is a wireless telegraph station at King Island, and will he take such steps to work it that the island may be kept in continuous communication with the rest of the Commonwealth ?
