Mr HUTCHISON (HINDMARSH, SOUTH AUSTRALIA) - I have received a letter from the corporation of Port Adelaide in which it is stated that -

The Postmaster-General is not required by Act to make any arrangements with the local authority as to the position of the telegraph and telephone poles before erection, and, after erection, should the local authority find that the position is not suitable, the cost of removal has to be borne by the local authority. This is looked on as an injustice.

Will the Acting Postmaster-General see if arrangements cannot be made in future between corporations and the Department before the erection of these poles?
