Senator MILLEN (New South Wales) . - I wish to direct the attention of the Minister representing the PostmasterGeneral to a matter which I should not have mentioned, except that there appears to be a possibility of the practice to which I allude being extended. I understand that, outside the post-office at Croydon, a suburb of Sydney, the Department is erecting an iron letter receiving-box. Surely that is a waste of money. But I believe that this is not an isolated instance. It seems extravagant expenditure, because receiving-boxes are not necessary in such situations.

Senator Findley - I will take the earliest opportunity of bringing the matter under the notice of the Postmaster-General.
