Mr MAHON (COOLGARDIE, WESTERN AUSTRALIA) - Will the PostmasterGeneral, before coming to any agreement with the Eastern Extension Telegraph Company allowing it to open an office in Melbourne, submit his proposals for the approval of the House?


Mr AUSTIN CHAPMAN - There is no proposed agreement with the Eastern Extension Telegraph Company, so far as I know at present.


Mr MAHON - Will the honorable gentleman please answer my question?


Mr AUSTIN CHAPMAN - Perhaps I did not catch it correctly. Will the honorable member be good enough to put it again, or to give me notice of it?


Mr MAHON - As the IostmasterGenera[ seems to have misunderstood my question, I "desire to repeat it. I wish to know whether, before he comes to an agreement with the Eastern Extension Telegraph Company about the opening of an office in Melbourne, he will submit what he proposes to do for the consideration of the House?


Mr AUSTIN CHAPMAN - I do not propose to come to any agreement with the company, but immediately any fresh developments take place, I shall Se very glad to put the matter before the House.
