Mr Stewart asked the Minister for Post and Telecommunications, upon notice:

(   1 ) Was the South West Sydney Regional Social Development Council Ltd an early applicant for a Community Access Broadcasting Licence in New South Wales.

(2   ) Is a second test transmission of the radio station to take lace on Friday 26, Saturday 27 and Sunday 28 November 976.

(3)   When can the South West Sydney Regional Social Development Council Ltd expect a decision on its application for a licence.


Mr Eric Robinson (MCPHERSON, QUEENSLAND) -The answers to the honourable member's questions are as follows:

(   1 ) The South West Sydney Regional Social Development Council Ltd indicated, in July 1 97S, its interest in obtaining a licence for a community access radio station.

(2)   Approval was given to the Southern Media Centre Community Radio Group, to conduct frequency modulation test transmissions for the period 26-28 November 1 976.

(3)   An important new provision in the Bill for an Act to amend the Broadcasting and Television Act 1942 is one which will permit the licensing of public broadcasting and television stations.

The honourable member will appreciate it would be inappropriate for me to take any action concerning the licensing of public broadcasting and television stations until the legislation has been enacted.
