Senator TOWNLEY asked the Acting Postmaster-General, upon notice:

What Tasinanian post offices, official or nonofficial, are planned to be closed prior to 31st December 1973.

Senator COTTON (New South WalesMinister for Civil Aviation) The answer to the honourable senator's question is as follows:

It is not planned to close any official post offices prior to 31st December 1973. Consideration is being given to closing the Takone and Calder West non-official post offices when the automatic telephone service is introduced shortly, and the Dulverton office at the end of April as it is serving only 2 families, one being that of the Postmistress. Scamander Upper, and Falmouth could be closed later in the year because very little business is being transacted and alternative mail arrangements can be made. Golconda could close at the end of the year if the automatic exchange is cutover as planned No firm plans have been made beyond this.
