Australian Broadcasting Corporation

Dear Mr Murphy

Petition regarding a request to reinstate lawn bowls broadcasting by the ABC

Thank you for your correspondence dated 19 March 2012, regarding a petition requesting the reinstatement of lawn bowls on the Australian Broadcasting Corporation (ABC).

I understand that in accordance with House Standing Order 209 (b) I am obliged to provide the Standing Committee on Petition with a response within 90 days of presentation.

I note that this petition is identical to a petition that was tabled in the House on 23 November 2011, to which the Australian Government tabled a response on 13 February 2012. I request that you refer this recent petitioner to the government's tabled response.

Thank you for bringing this important issue to my attention.

from the Minister for Broadband, Communications and the Digital Economy, Senator Conroy
