(Question No. 5063)


Mr Coleman asked the Minister for Foreign Affairs, upon notice, on 18 February 1987:

Is he able to say who will select, and what criteria will be used to select, Soviet television programs to be shown in Australia by the ABC on the occasion of the 70th Anniversary of the October Revolution under the Program of Cultural Co-operation between Australia and the USSR.


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

The ABC will select programs in accordance with its normal programming criteria and an agreement between the ABC and Gostelradio which states that both sides will facilitate the provision to each other of news material on key events in Soviet and Australian life.
