Mr EWING - The answers tothe honorable member's questions are as follow : -

1.   Yes; but they are recent vacancies, with the exception of two, namely, Tamworth and Coraki, which became vacant on the 19th and 21 st February last respectively.

2.   Seven, namely, Newcastle, Picton, Tamworth, Deniliquin, Lambton, Coraki, and Goulburn.

3.   Recommendations were not submitted by Deputy Postmaster-General, Sydney, in the cases of Tamworth, Deniliquin, and Lambton, pending the adoption of the Public Service Commissioner's scheme for the general transfer of postmasters to meet the requirements of classification. Any recommendations 'made would probably have conflicted with changes proposed by the Commissioner.

4.   Executive authority for filling the vacancies has now been obtained.
