Senator WHEELDON - Is the Minister representing the PostmasterGeneral aware of the serious difficulties being experienced by telephone users in Perth owing to the overloading of switches at the old Perth telephone exchange, which apparently is still being used? Is it a fact that there will be no improvement in the position until the new exchange in Pier Street. Perth is completed? Is the exchange yet completed? If not, as it was anticipated that the new exchange would be completed by about August of last year will the Minister indicate what stage the erection of the exchange has reached and when the people of Perth can expect to have a satisfactory telephone service?

Senator Dame ANNA BELLE RANKIN - The honourable senator has drawn the PostmasterGeneral's attention to the difficulties of the telephone service in the city of Perth. He has asked when the new exchange may be in operation. I will endeavour to get that information for him from the PostmasterGeneral.
