Question No. 254


Mr Lloyd asked the Minister for Communications, upon notice, on 26 May 1983:

Has the Government made an announcement on the uses of the unallocated transponders on Australia's domestic communications satellite; if not, when will the Government make a statement on this subject.


Mr Duffy —The answer to the honourable member's question is as follows:

No announcement has been made regarding the uses planned for the unallocated medium-powered transponders on the Australian Communications Satellite System. A statement will be made when the Government has completed a full assessment of the wide range of proposals received and the fundamental policy issues involved.
