Senator GUILFOYLE (VICTORIA) - I refer to the answer which the Postmaster-General gave yesterday to a question from Senator Poyser with regard to the proposed takeover of company coin telephones- Red Phone and Easiphone. I ask: When the services have been absorbed by the Postmaster-General's Department what will be the cost of a local telephone call from these services?

Senator BISHOP -While the matter has not been finalised, the new tariff will be the tariff that has been settled by the Parliament. I have asked the Post Office to investigate the question of adjusting the instruments to provide access to the emergency lines and to see what it can do as soon as possible.
