Senator FINDLEY - The answers to the honorable senator's questions are -

1.   The contract provides for the establishment of the stations, for which a tender has been accepted, in April, 1911.

a.   Tenders have been accepted for stations at Sydney and Fremantle, and are about to be called for stations at Thursday Island and Papua.

Senator SAYERS - Arising out of that answer, I desire to ask whether the Minister can supply the Senate with any data in reference to the establishment of the proposed wireless telegraphy station at

Thursday Island? When is it likely that tenders for the work will be called ?

Senator FINDLEY - I understand that a site has been selected at Thursday Island, and that arrangements have been made to proceed with the erection of the station. I cannot specify the date on which work will commence, or the period over which it will extend, but I can assure the honorable senator that no time will be lost.
