Senator RUSSELL - Will the Minister representing the Postmaster-General see that the number of public telephones on our central railway stations are added to? May I be permitted, sir, to point out that, although the averages may not be high, most of those who use the public telephones are on their way to a train and have not very much time to spare. It is quite common to see as many as eight or ten persons waiting to use the public telephones, and, as the trains have to depart in a few minutes, very often those persons have to go away without conveying what might be an urgent or important message. I ask that the number of public telephones on the Flindersstreet and Spencer-street stations be added to.

Senator McCOLL - I shall have pleasure in bringing the matter before the notice of the Postmaster-General.
