Mr AUSTIN CHAPMAN (EDEN-MONARO, NEW SOUTH WALES) (Postmaster-General) - The honorable member was good enough to inform me of his intention to ask this question, to which the following is the answer: -

While the Postmaster-General will be pleased to receive any representation* that the Chambers of Commerce, or other representative bodies interested, may consider" it desirable to make with reference to the conditions of the English mail service, he regrets that he cannot undertake to submit the proposed conditions to the Chambers of Commerce or similar bodies. To do so would involve a serious delay which it is imperative to avoid if the difficulties attending the negotiations for the existing service are not to be repeated.
