Mr POYNTON (GREY, SOUTH AUSTRALIA) asked the PostmasterGeneral, upon notice -

1.   Will he inform the House why the recent regulations altering the time of closing telegraph offices in South Australia on Saturday from 5.30 7.30 p.m., to bring that State intoline with other States, is made to apply only to the State of South Australia, and why two other States, whose time of closing is 6 p.m. throughout the whole week, are not similarly brought into line?

2.   Will he rectify this anomaly either by causing all States to come into line or reverting to the system which, prior to the advent of the Commonwealth, was considered adequate to the needs of the various States?
