Mr COLLARD (KALGOORLIE, WESTERN AUSTRALIA) - My question is addressed to the Postmaster-General. I refer to the proposed alteration of installation costs for telephone line plant in country areas. What will now be the situation with regard to applications which have already been lodged and accepted under the 15-mile free installation provision? Will the terms under which those applications were accepted be changed in any way? Will there be any alterations with regard to costs for those applicants who have been given firm or tentative installation dates?

Mr Lionel Bowen (KINGSFORD-SMITH, NEW SOUTH WALES) - It is true that there has been a change in what is known as the country line policy. Nevertheless, all contracts entered into, in respect of which quotes have been given and deposits paid, will be honoured.
