QUESTION - TELEPHONE SERVICES


Mr ANTHONY (RICHMOND, NEW SOUTH WALES) (Postmaster-General) - During the last four years of office of this Government, the number of rural automatic exchanges in operation has been, increased from about 150 to 600. We are still endeavouring to meet the demand for rural automatic exchanges in country districts, but in this respect we are limited both financially and by the number of such exchanges that are procurable. I think that, at the moment, the condition mentioned by the honorable member for Wimmera still obtains, that is to say, only the two types are available.
