Question No. 247


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

Is any action being taken to introduce AM stereo radio; if so, when will this new form of broadcasting be permitted in Australia.


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

Engineering investigations into the various systems of AM stereo sound broadcasting are being carried out by the Department in collaboration with the Federation of Australian Radio Broadcasters (FARB).

This work is being undertaken over the next few months and no recommendations on the introduction of AM stereo sound broadcasting into Australia can properly be taken until the results of the engineering investigations are obtained and evaluated.
