Sir JOHN QUICK (BENDIGO, VICTORIA) - Has the attention of the Postmaster-General been directed to the complaints which have been made recently about the defective telephone instruments in use in Bendigo and other important centres? Mr. Hesketh, in his report, says that the instruments known as the Berthon Ader telephones are obsolete, and that the best instruments are those known as the Ericsson. Will the honorable gentleman take steps to have placed on the Estimates a vote which will provide for the substitution of new and up-to-date instruments for those which are defective and obsolete, not only in Bendigo, but in other important cities?
