Senator FINDLEY - The Government have now under consideration the advisableness of establishing wireless telegraphic stations, not only in Queensland, but throughout Australia. The PostmasterGeneral is looking into the matter in a businesslike way, and before any long period has elapsed we hope that the whole of the States will be connected by wireless telegraphy.

Senator SAYERS - I wish to ask the Minister whether it is likely that the matter will be decided before the prorogation of Parliament?

Senator FINDLEY - I cannot say definitely the date upon which wireless telegraphy stations will be erected in any State, but I can assure the honorable senator that no time will be lost.

Senator Millen - The Minister means no more time?

Senator FINDLEY - No time is being wasted. In the case of Thursday Island, the site has been chosen, and arrangements are being made for the installation of a wireless telegraphy station there, and also in Western Australia and in Sydney. In regard to the other States, the Government have the matter under serious consideration.
