Senator RAE (NEW SOUTH WALES) asked the Minister representing the Postmaster-General, upon notice -

1.   Under what regulations are country postoffices permitted to close on Saturday afternoons ?

a.   How many post-offices in New South Wales have been closed in accordance with such regulations ?

3.   What opportunities were given to those residents who might have raised objections in the public interests to do so?

4.   If petitions are presented in favour of such closing, are any steps taken to prove the bona fides of those signing same?

5.   Will the Minister consider the advisability of substituting, in lieu of petitions for such closing, the necessity of holding properly advertised public meetings of the residents affected in each case before a decision is arrived at?
