Senator KEATING (for Senator Ready) asked the Minister representing the PostmasterGeneral, upon notice -

1.   Is he aware that the female office-cleaners at the General Post Office, Hobart, Tasmania, only receive 251. per week, and that they are only allowed one week's holiday every year, whereas other postal employes are allowed three weeks ?

2.   Does not the provision that all postal employes over the age of twenty-one should receive £110 per annum apply to these cleaners, one of whom has four years' service?

3.   Considering the nature of the work of these employe's, will the Minister recommend an improvement in their conditions?
